Dr. Jyanni Steffensen is an ARC Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department for Social Inquiry (Women's Studies, Labour Studies) at the University of Adelaide, Australia. She is currently researching a project titled 'Queer Machines: Narrative Construction of the Subject in Technoculture' which examines the ways in which the body, gender and sexuality are imaginatively and narratively constructed in various artistic and scientific discourses. Virtual subjects for analysis have been selected from the creative ideas and practices in experimental arts and technology (eg Suzanne Treister's Rosalind Brodsky and Francesca da Rimini's gashgirl), scientific softbots (artificially intelligent programs) and hardbots (robots), and some of the fantasy figures of science-fiction cinema (eg replicants, cyborgs, fembots).

Rosalind Brodsky was born in North London and led a relatively normal life until her mid-twenties. Since 1995 Brodsky suffered from delusions, primarily in relation to her fantasies of time travel. She believed herself to be employed by a 21st century organisation called, the Institute of Miltronics and Advanced Time Interventionality. The boundaries between virtual and 'real' time travel became blurred and during the last fifty years of her life the delusional episodes became more and more frequent. In what may have been an attempt to cure herself Brodsky experienced many time travelling episodes in which she made visits to key psychoanalysts of the 20th century.

Alison's work is based on an interest in language, and ideas of narrative: how our stories evolve, how we tell them, how language affects us, and the relationship between visual and written modes of expression. It also has a lot to do with human frailty. He current painting concerns her difficulty with speech and its slippage of meaning compared with the articulation of the written. Visual texts, little disconnected narratives, anthropomorphic fragments spill out around an empty speech balloon... It's like the speechlessness, emptiness of Zen space... Around it our lives appear as hyperactive scribble in a tragic-comedy of human fragility, where youth and old age cavort together - a bit like the about-face of comedy to tragedy in all elements of life...

Susie is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts. She has had an extensive career as a performer and has taught at various tertiary institutions. Susie has created several performance pieces exploring the territory between dance and theatre and co-written 3 plays. Commencing with her study of ancient Greek plays in the 1970's, she has been investigating the exchange between the lyric voice and the rational discursive voice of linear argument. In 1998, after an eleven year break, Susie resumed work as a performance maker with a body of texts entitled 'Stories from the interior'. These form the basis for an ongoing series of exploratory performance events investigating how mothering and the making of art can co-exist.

"My placement in a field of perceptual dislocations has born in me a passion I am constantly questioning the value of. I like working with the breaks, beats and samples, cut and paste, quotes and fragments - alienated signs, to form variations of spatial, textual, visual and sexual traditions. My written and installation-based practices exist in parallel, each informing, and sparking off the other. "

Mark has had writing published in Artlink, Art Monthly, Broadsheet and Realtime. His experimental writing can be found online at the Electronic Writing and Research Ensemble and frAme. His involvement in the arts has included both curatorial work and the development of his own individual practice.

Recent exhibitions at Stripp, in Melbourne, and the Experimental Art Foundation, here in Adelaide, investigated the relationships between language, belief and architectural space with a particular emphasis being placed on the constructions and positionings of humanity (culturally, biologically, phenomenologically) in relation to the natural world and the narratives of natural history.

Kevin is an artist, writer and lecturer. His practice is interdisciplinary and often collaborative: an activity that has been focused in the areas of painting, sculpture, installation art, photography, writing and music/sound works--often exploring combinations of a number of these forms in any one given work. Performance art, until 1995, played only a small role in the development of this practice if looked at in its entirety. Since then it has been central to it. Kevin's interest in poetry, and writing--on art and in general--now complements his practise. He is currently teaching at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, Scotland.

Dylan Everett is an Adelaide-based installation artist. His projects seek to reposition the body in relation to those structures that it has historically been excluded from. Works are aligned with writing practices which resist linear modes of reading and arrangement, emphasising process, movement, break and translation. What emerges then is a multiplicity of states that the body, as site, is able to occupy.
