empyre: critical perspectives on contemporary cross-disciplinary issues, practices and events in networked media

"–empyre– facilitates critical perspectives on contemporary cross–disciplinary issues, practices and events in networked media by inviting guests –key new media artists, curators, theorists, producers and others to participate in thematic discussions.

–empyre– is an Australian based global community which preserves its autonomy as a non–hierarchical collaborative entity by engaging with new content on a monthly basis. The list was instigated by Melinda Rackham (AU) in 2002. The community grew exponentially and within the first year Adrian Miles (AU) and Rebecca Cannon (AU) joined briefly as facilitators. Long–term facilitators Christina McPhee (USA) and Michael Arnold Mages (USA) were invited to the –empyre– curatorium soon after, and during the next years they were joined by Jim Andrews (CA)and Felix Sattler (AU/GER). In 2005 Tracey Meziane (AU) and Marcus Bastos (BR) joined the team, and in 2006 and 2007 it was extended with Sérgio Basbaum (BR), Nicholas Ruiz III (USA), Renate Ferro (USA) and Tim Murray (USA).
