Gate Pages :: February 03: Noah Wardrip-Fruin, Adam Chapman, Brion Moss, Duane Whitehurst


Noah Wardrip-Fruin is a Creative Writing Fellow at Brown University. He is the lead editor of The New Media Reader (with Nick Montfort) and of First Person: New Media as Story, Performance, and Game (with Pat Harrigan), both of which are forthcoming from MIT Press. His past work includes Gray Matters, a collaborative fiction embedded in images of a human body. Its presentation at the Sandra Gering Gallery in 1996 was the first public presentation of a zooming user interface. His work on it was supported by an Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship.

Adam Chapman is an artist, writer, and designer. His work has been presented at The American Museum of the Moving Image, The Pittsburgh Children's Museum, the DeCordova Museum, D.U.M.B.O. Film and Video Festival, and SIGGRAPH. He has been nominated for a Rockefeller New Media grant. He is Art Editor for the magazine CROWD, and was Art Gallery Papers Coordinator for SIGGRAPH 2002. His work has been written about in The New York Times Online, Newsweek, and Communication Arts. He holds an MFA in fiction from the New School University.

Brion Moss, being an engineer by training and vocation, does not generally think of himself as an artist, but thoroughly enjoyed being part of the conceptualization and creation of The Impermanence Agent. He is currently employed as a computer geek by his alma mater, UC Berkeley.

Duane Whitehurst has been working in the Internet field for far too long now. He has done work for the Voyager Company and NYU along with several small web shops you have probably never heard of. Duane feels very lucky to have worked with the likes of Noah, Adam, and Brion and thinks it's a testament to the Net's potential that the Agent group didn't have its first in-person meeting until the project was completed. Duane is currently hiding out in the Pacific Northwest building websites, playing guitar, and trying to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
