Nettrice Gaskins' work explores the intersection of art, technology, and community. In both real and virtual worlds her work is about extending notions of the inter-medial by breaking down the boundaries between various art forms in radical ways. In fact she chooses not to distinguish her work in one area or space. In Second Life, as the avatar Nettrice Beattie, she has created several immersive and artistic installations including a recent one for IBM's Exhibition Space. Nettrice received a BFA in Computer Graphics, with Honors, from Pratt Institute and an MFA in Art & Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This Fall she enrolled in the Digital Media PhD program at Georgia Institute of Technology. Nettrice currently serves on the board of directors for the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture.
