Ursula Endlicher turns digital code into physical form. A media artist who has worked since the mid ‘90s with the Internet, she is focusing on how digital culture imbues the material world. She has built Internet art works and performances, with real-time data and code determining their layout and choreographies. Combining her background in Fine Art, Theater Studies and Computer Art, she has transformed the hidden structures of the Inter-networked world into mixed-media installations using ceramics, video, agricultural fields and food, inviting her audience to partake in the celebration of these re-coded systems through tours and dinner events offering “edible HTML.” In her most recent installation "Input Field Form #2" she transformed the Artist Residency application form – the HTML form that gathers user information through Input Fields – into an agricultural field at ChaNorth in Upstate NY during the "Process Park" residency. Among her most well known Internet Art works is "html_butoh", a movement database for the HTML language, commissioned by one of the first leading website supporting Internet Art, Turbulence.org. Another work, "Light and Dark Networks", part of the Whitney Museum of American Art's permanent collection, populated the museum's website with different "data performances" driven by changes in New York City's weather and air quality. She has presented her work in national and international galleries and venues including Harvestworks, StreamingWorks, Air Circulation, transmediale Berlin, SIGGRAPH Asia, and ISEA, and was awarded a project residency at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center. Ursula was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, and lives in New York since 1993.

Le’Andra LeSeur (b. 1989 in Bronx, NY) is an interdisciplinary artist working and living in Jersey City, NJ. Her work explores black identity informed by the effects that regulated systems of oppression have on black women, specifically. Through visual media, installation, and performance, her hope is to reclaim and dismantle stereotypes surrounding black female identity through the reworking of conventional art forms and mundane objects - ultimately reshaping the context of spaces where the lives of the oppressed are silenced and celebrated in the same breath. LeSeur has participated in exhibitions throughout the Southeast including On Being Black at Arnika Dawkins Gallery in 2015. LeSeur was the recipient of the 2017 Contemporary Black Art award at Artprize 9 in Grand Rapids, MI for her piece, Searching, and the recipient of the 2018 Time-Based Category Award and Juried Grand Prize at Artprize 10 in Grand Rapids, MI for her piece, brown, carmine, and blue. Outside of creating her own work, LeSeur has made notable contributions to the arts through her active participation in curating exhibitions and workshops for women of color that speak to the power in existing through expression in a world that shuns black women for these exact actions.
