Steve Dietz is Artistic Director of the 01SJ Biennial, a global festival of art on the edge in San Jose, California. He is also the founder of Northern Lights, a roving, collaborative, interactive media-oriented, arts agency supporting artists to present innovative art in the public sphere to engender new relations between audience and artwork and more broadly between citizenry and their built environment. He founded the new media art program at the Walker Art Center in 1996. Since Beyond Interface, he has curated over a dozen exhibitions and written and lectured widely on the intersection of art, technology and digital culture. The forthcoming exhibition FEEDFORWARD: Angel of History, co-curated with Christiane Paul, will be presented at Laboral in Asturias, Spain, in July 2009.
