Sindee Nakatani is a code designer and Japanese linguist in the San Francisco Bay Area whose focus has been translation and semantics in information technologies. She is currently co-currator of the new media exhibition binarykatwalk.net along with Jeremy Hight.
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.
