Brian Mackern
Montevideo – Urugvaj

+++ Brian je direktor in urednik <artef@ctos virtuales >, enega prvih prostorov posvečenih raziskovanju, razvijanju in postavitvi projektov umetnost Web/Net v Južni Ameriki (1996). Pod več CD-jev in projektov spletne umetnosti, za katere je ustvaril video-zvočna okolja in strukture, se je podpisal kot ustvarjalec in oblikovalec. Delo Briana Mackerna temelji na pojmovanju struktur in postopkov: tako raziskuje vprašanja mejna ploskev/oblikovanje, naključja in sprašuje po odnosu med generativnim, reaktivnim in interaktivnim.
Od leta 2000 dela, med številnimi kolektivnimi spletnimi projekti, tudi na izdelavi [netart_latino podatkovne baze], baze podatkov, v kateri so zbrani latino-ameriški spletni umetniki. Končno pa, od 1999, ustvarja performanse na različnih dogodkih kot VJ. Njegovo delo, v osrčju elektronskega kolektiva INNOVA, se osredotoča na živo in vizualne animacije v realnem času. Sodeluje tudi s številnimi glasbeniki in DJ, kot so: Fernando Lagreca, Federico Deutsch, DJ Recycle (Urugvaj), Simbad Segui, Tripnik, Jorge Haro, DJ Palacios, DJ Andrés Oddone (Argentina), Chateau Flight (Francija), DJ ESP-Woody McBride (ZDA), Reverb, Elixir, Cuarteto de Nos (concierto 21 años) et Bajofondo Tangoclub.
