Dr. Aleksandra Dulic is an artist-scholar working at the intersection of interactive multimedia installation and live performance with research foci in cross-cultural media performance, interactive animation and computational poetics. She has received a number of awards for her short animated films and interactive media works. Her work is widely presented in exhibitions, festivals, conferences and television broadcasts across Europe, Asia and North America.  These works include films, animated media performances, interactive computer installations and software tools for interactive animation. She is active as an artist, curator, writer, educator, teaching courses, presenting and publishing papers across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia.http://cct.ok.ubc.ca/people.html
Kenneth Newby is a media artist, composer-performer, educator, interaction designer, and audio producer whose creative practice explores the use of technology to enable media performances and installations that are rich in aural, visual and cultural nuances. His work is widely presented in exhibitions, concerts, festivals, and radio broadcasts throughout Canada, Asia, Europe, and the USA. These works include compositions of media performance, electro-acoustic and acoustic music; interactive computer systems for live performance and installation; software tools for composition of music and animation, new composition for Javanese and Balinese gamelan ensembles; interdisciplinary collaborations with composers and artists in various disciplines (film, video, dance, theatre, poetry, shadow play) and participation in improvisational ensembles.
His SSHRC funded Computational Poetics research project has resulted in the development of sophisticated media diffusion techniques that enable the creation of singular audiovisual installation works that explore the expressive potential of sculptural forms of multi-channel audio and visual images.
Kenneth's current art research involves interdisciplinary collaborations with several researchers in the creation of computationally based audiovisual installation works that represent complex images of multi-cultural identity. These works feature both situated, local sites while incorporating mobile communications technologies to allow the participation of individuals at a distance.
The Centre for Culture and Technology is an interdisciplinary institute that engages multiple forms of art, media and information technologies as vehicles for the exploration and expression of community, culture, and identity. A key role of the Centre is to advance research/creation processes and theoretical discourse in the dynamic field of culture and technology in order to address rapid changes in technologies themselves as well as their reflection of, and influence on our cultures and communities. Through this focus, the Centre fosters innovation in computer based multimedia technology and its associated art-making practices by building bridges between technology, community and culture. We are developing new approaches to digital technology by integrating the embodied intelligence of expressive arts and crafts with design processes in culturally appropriate forms. An integration of cultural performance with interactive media environments can draw from the long history of performative traditions that effectively address their place and communities.
