Donna Leishman

In 2004 Donna Leishman completed a practice-led PhD in interactive narrative at the Glasgow School of Art and is principal of 6amhoover.com. Her Masters in Design (1999-2000) produced the darkly romantic Little Red Ridinghood, which has been widely acclaimed. Donna has worked commercially in both Scotland and New York (with Bullseyeart.com) during the latter she was an Emmy award nominee for her work on the Rosie O'Donnell Show. Her responsive animations have also been showcased in both the New York Times and the Guardian Online. At present Donna teaches postgraduates and is the undergraduate programme leader in Illustration at Dundee's School of Media Arts & Imaging where she continues her research into image, narrative and interaction.

Jason Nelson

Jason Nelson's digital artwork/poetics are built from net architecture experimentation, the rethinking/rebreeding of the text and images and movement and sounds of poetics and fictional worlds. And although he dearly misses the late winter snows of the Oklahoma Plains, those wispy cold winds, he is current a Griffith University Digital Art and Writing lecturer, living on the Golden Coast of Australia. His art/poetics site, secrettechnology.com, has had over 3 million hits in 2006 and his strange net creations have won odd awards and been featured in contemporary art galleries in Spain, Argentina, the US, Japan, Singapore, Canada, UK, Russia, Australia, Germany and dozens of other, both obscure and prestigious venues.


Talan Memmott

Talan Memmott is a hypermedia writer/artist originally from San Francisco, California. His hypermedia work is generally Web-based and freely accessible on the Internet. Memmott is Assistant Professor of New Media in the Teledramatic Arts and Technology Department at California State University Monterey Bay and has taught digital art, electronic writing, and new media studies at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Karlskrona Sweden, the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Colorado Boulder, and the Rhodes Island School of Design. He holds an MFA in Literary Arts/Electronic Writing from Brown University.
