xtine is a media artist and educator, and the co-author – with Eyebeam senior fellow Michael Mandiberg – of Digital Foundations: Intro to Media Design with the Adobe Creative Suite (New Riders/AIGA 2009). She is informed by the history of conceptual art and practices in the era of social-networking. Using tools common to consumer web practices, such as databases, search engines, blogs, and applications – sometimes in combination with popular sites like Facebook, YouTube, or Mechanical Turk, she creates web projects and communities that foster interpretation and autonomy. xtine believes that art can shape social experiences by mediating consumer culture and envisioning imaginary practices. As an educator, she is interested in the art of instruction.
