[Nettime-bold] Simon Biggs--only NYC appearance!!

Please distribute…


Thundergulch the new media arts initiative of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) is proud to present:


New Media Artist Simona Biggs (UK)

Monday, April 22, 2002, 6:00 pm --- FREE

66 Fifth Avenue, Parsons Auditorium, New School University, between 12th and 13th Streets.

Over the past two decades Simon Biggs has obsessively explored issues around language, legibility, and the limits of meaning;

social structures, networks and systems of power as artifacts to be navigated, deconstructed and re-valued. At his only

New York City public appearance, Biggs will guide his audience through a compelling body of work: from “Babel,” his 3D representation

of the Dewey Decimal System used to navigate the World Wide Web, to “The Great Wall of China,” an online interactive

language-generating machine based on Franz Kafka’s story of the same title. Biggs will also show and discuss work from

Parallex,” his latest interactive environment co-created with choreographer Sue Hawksley. More information about Simon

Bigg’s work can also be found at
