Jeffrey Shaw (PDF)
Jeffrey Shaw has been a leading figure in new media art since its emergence from the performance, expanded cinema and installation paradigms of the 1960s to its present day technology-informed and virtualized forms. In a prolific oeuvre of widely exhibited and critically acclaimed work he has pioneered and set benchmarks for the creative use of digital media technologies in the fields of virtual and augmented reality, immersive visualization environments, navigable cinematic systems and interactive narrative. Shaw’s landmark art works include The Legible City (1989), The Virtual Museum (1991), The Golden Calf (1994), Place-A Users Manual (1995), conFiguring the CAVE (1997) and the Web of Life (2002). He was the founding director of the ZKM Institute for Visual Media Karlsruhe (1991-2002), and in 2003 he was awarded an ARC Federation Fellowship to direct the UNSW iCinema Centre where he leads a research program in immersive interactive post-narrative systems for the art to come.
Studied Arts/Architecture at Melbourne University. His studies were supported by architectural and wedding photography. By 1967 Gollings had begun work as a freelance advertising photographer specialising in fashion. This work gradually broadened into large scale location work and travel accounts. Early international accounts included Philip Morris brands, Shell Petrol, Sitmar Shipping Lines, Air Lanka and Air Nauru. Amongst local campaigns were Sportsgirl, Jag, Adelle Palmer, ANZ Bank, Australia Post, Great Keppell and Dunk Islands, Marlboro cigarettes, Aywon. In 1967 he received private tuition from Ansel Adams in his darkroom at Carmel, California. He has taught the use of large format cameras, and lectured on architecture and advertising photography at Prahran College, Melbourne and Sydney universities and Philip Institute amongst others. Recently more time has been spent on longer term projects with academic or cultural significance for books, exhibitions and fine prints.
Paul Doornbusch (PDF)
Born in Melbourne Australia, Paul Doornbusch is a composer, sonologist, researcher and occasional performer who works largely with algorithmic composition systems for traditional instruments and electronics. Doornbusch has also been involved in media works such as Place-Hampi, Sacred Ankor and the Common Ground commission for Melbourne’s Commonwealth Games. Appointed to the International Who’s Who of Music and Musicians, Doornbusch’s musical works are mostly algorithmic in nature and involve computers, or computers and instruments, and are concerned with rich textures and elaborate but clearly delineated, multi-dimensional structures. With chapters in the Oxford Handbook of Computer Music and a book on the reconstruction of the earliest computer music (CSIRAC), Paul Doornbusch’s research and publications encompass the breadth of his professional interests.
