Rebecca Cannon  
Rebecca Cannon is an Australian new media artist, curator and producer. Her award-winning videos and animations have screened at major festivals worldwide, including Transmediale. Her current creative projects include the research and development of an interactive animation that realistically responds to the presence of viewers. She curates selectparks.net, an online archive of artistic computer game modifications, and is curating the upcoming exhibition Cult Classic – the major visual arts component of the 2004 Next Wave Festival. She is also producing the DVD compilation Neopoetry which brings together young Australian writers with media artists.  Rebecca says: “In my spare time I write about artists making games. I also curate many-media exhibitions, produce video compilations, research opensource CMS' and produce my own machinima and other digital media artworks.  For professional work I am a User Interface Architect for applications being deployed to wired and wireless technologies.
