    About the Artist

    Tina LaPorta is a media artist who lives and works in New York City. Her most recent work has been created specifically for the Internet as a continued exploration of female subjectivity within a global networked environment. In 1999, Ms. LaPorta received a commission for the creation of Distance, a web-specific work hosted on Turbulence.org (New York) with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. She exhibited an installation of prints from Distance at Atelier Sevigne, Paris this September. Distance will also be featured at the Montreal International Festival of New Cinema & New Media this year.

    Ms. LaPorta's net-specific work Future_body Version 1.0 premiered at the Alterities conference this year at the Ecole Suprieure Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris where she also lectured on her work. This work is mirrored on the Les Penelopes website in France, "remixed" for Rencontres D'Art Contemporain 99; Aix en Provence (France) and has been included in SEAFair '99 at the Museum of the City of Skopje (Macedonia).
