Born from the computerless land of farmers and spring thunderstorms, Jason Nelson somehow stumbled into creating awkward and wondrous digital poems/art games and interactive stories of odd lives. Currently, he teaches/researches Net Art and Electronic Literature at Griffith University in the Gold Coast's contradictory lands. Aside from coaxing his students into breaking, playing and morphing their creativity with all manner of technologies, he exhibits widely in galleries and journals, with work featured around globe in New York, Mexico, Taiwan, Spain, Singapore and Brazil, at FILE, ACM, LEA, ISEA, ACM, ELO and dozens of other acronyms. And he’s won numerous prizes in the field for both digital poetry, fiction and art. But in the web based realm where his work resides, Jason is most proud of the millions of visitors his artwork/digital writing attracts each year. www.secrettechnology.com He is also the founder of the E-Lit community portal http://netpoetic.com and a Board member of the ELO.
