I have volunteered to assist Edward Shanken as an Assistant Designer/Rapporteur for the ISEA06 symposiums wiki. This wiki will be a record of the symposium content and commentary. Think of it as real-time reporting and ultimately a document of ISEA06. Find the wiki here and make commentary, ask questions, and report on the symposium.

Edward Shanken is Professor of Art History and Media Theory at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He is known for his advocacy of collaborations and syntheses of AST (art, science, and technology). Shanken has also become a proponent in the expanding in move for alternative approach to trans-discplinary graduate eduation. See a lecture Eddie gave on these subjects at UCLA December 2005 here.

My cohort also assisting the rapporteuring, is Christopher Baker. Chris a graduate art student from the University of Minnesota. His research log is here.
