I work on ideas about interactivity, 3D virtual worlds and the implications of our new technologies. I write, and am also an artist. I have a PhD from UC Irvine in Visual Studies, an MA from Art Center in Critical Theory and a BA from Barnard in Art History. A former art critic for about a dozen years, my work has appeared in many national and international journals, newspapers and magazines, notably in Art in America and Artforum. My website is www.tobeycrockett.com where one can find text and more info. I have long been interested in the possibilities of what one Swiss friend called a "Gedanken Bank" - an idea bank. I would love to see if this can function in that way. My concern is that it will just be web TV, which is not interactivity per se.
