Mark Tribe is an artist, entrepreneur, curator and arts administrator
whose interests lie at the
intersection of emerging technologies and contemporary art. In 1996, he
founded Rhizome.org,
a nonprofit organization focused on new media art. He then founded
StockObjects, a startup
company that sold animations and other “digital objects” online. Mark
speaks widely on new
media art and nonprofit management. Recent speaking engagements include
The Art Institute of
Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design and Razorfish Inc. He plays an
active role as an
advocate for net artists on grant panels and in the press. He also
serves on the advisory boards
of nonprofit arts organizations and new media companies. His most recent
artwork, a net art
project called StarryNight, is an interface for browsing Rhizome’s text
library that represents
each article as a star in a night sky. StarryNight can be found online
www.rhizome.org/starrynight. Prior to Rhizome.org and StockObjects, Mark
worked as an artist
in Berlin, and developed commercial web sites at Pixelpark GmbH, a
leading German new media
agency. He received a Masters of Fine Arts in Visual Art from the
University of California, San
Diego in 1994 and a BA in Visual Art from Brown University in 1990.

The NETART INITIATIVE <http://netart-init.org> is a loosely knit, open
based, hub styled, forum oriented, action enabled consortium, where
people meet,
virtually and bodily, to communicate, exchange, and discourse for
advancing the
understanding of a virtual art, a networked art and an art that will be
and ubiquitous in the years to come.

jihui (the meeting point), a self-regulated digital salon, invites all
interested people to send ideas for discussion/performance/etc,
jihui is where your voice heard and your vision shared.

jihui is sponsored by Digital Design Department and Center for New
Design @ Parsons School of Design
