Born in 1968, American media artist Andy Deck lives and works in New York City. Deck makes public art for the Internet. Much of his online work occupies and articulates a middle ground between art and interactive entertainment, between communication and creativity, and between independent and collaborative expression. He is the founder of Artcontext. It explores collaborative processes and media politics in the context of art and connectivity, blurring familiar formal categories with hybrid phenomena like network drawing spaces, game-like search engines, written pictures, and informative art. Among his best known works are Glyphiti, Open Studio, Icontext, Space Invaders Act 1732, Screening Circle, Commission Control, Graffic Jam, and CultureMap.
