Beatriz da Costa, Jamie Schulte, Brooke Singer
Beatriz da Costa, Jamie Schulte and Brooke Singer have been working together to produce SWIPE (www.we-swipe.us) since the fall of 2002. They each bring a variety of specializations, experiences and interdisciplinary interests to their collaborative practice.
Da Costa's interests include robotics, bio-tech initiatives and surveillance projects. Her dedication to participatory practice and interaction with the public represents one of the key components of her work. Da Costa recently joined the University of California at Irvine as an Assistant Professor in the new graduate program of Arts, Computation and Engineering.
Schulte is an engineer who designs systems that engage human aesthetics, culture and politics. He has been a key collaborator in projects ranging from contestational robotics to video surveillance and interactive installations.
Schulte is currently a robotics researcher at Stanford University. Singer is a digital media artist and arts organizer based in Brooklyn. She is Assistant Professor of New Media at the State University of New York, Purchase College.
Every month from March 2001 to February 2006 an artist was invited to present their work in the form of a “Gate Page” on artport. Each of these pages functioned as a portal to the artist's own sites and projects.
Wherever necessary and possible, these works are made functional through emulation and reconstructions from the Internet Archive. Not all of them have been restored to their original state and their conservation is ongoing. You can also view the original Gate Pages archive to see how they were presented at the time of their creation.
