Guest Blogger


Welcome nathaniel!

Our first Guest Blogger, nathaniel stern, is a New York artist currently residing in Johannesburg, South Africa (if you're interested in the South African art scene, his own blog is a must!). He will periodically make posts on behalf of other South Africans interested in the developing field of networked performance.

nathaniel is an internationally exhibited installation artist, net.artist and performance poet. His collaborative physical theatre and multimedia performance work has won three FNB Vita Awards - including Best Presentation of a New Contemporary Work - and has been featured on the main stage at the Grahamstown Festival (South Africa). His poetry repertoire includes the US National Poetry Slam competition and the HIV/AIDS Arts, Media & Film Festival (South Africa). nathaniel's interactive installations have also won awards in New York, and Australia, and his net.art has been featured in festivals all over Europe, Asia and the US.

nathaniel received his BS in Textiles and Apparel Design from Cornell University, and his Masters from Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, in Interactive Telecommunications. He currently works both in and from Johannesburg, as an adjunct (distance teaching) faculty member of the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, external lecturer and supervisor at the Wits School of Arts' Digital Arts MA, and freelance lecturer at Newtown's Anti-Retroviral Theatre program and The South African School Of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance.
