Panagiotis Mina completed a BA in Communication Culture and Media at Coventry University. He has been working as a photographer and video maker and as an audio/visual artist in Cyprus since 2003.
He works with visual or acoustical elements to create distinct objects and texts that frequently cross the lines between parody / reality / auteurship / art / pop. As a musician he performs using a selection of electronic modular sythesizers, drum machines and haptic instruments, guitars, drums and microphones which metamorphose constantly as his sets are often based on autoschediasm. Furthermore, he has performed solo shows and created installations at various art galleries in Cyprus and abroad. (Larnaca, CY)

Throughout four decades of teaching and working in the areas of expanded arts and intermedia Peter Chamberlain has emphasized systemic structure: the structure of process, of production, of value systems, of composition, of the art world, etc. An effective way to elicit an understanding and respect for the function and importance of structure is by employing scores through all aspects of a creative process. This approach is different from using sketches or storyboards because the act of using a score involves constantly evolving and adaptive creative processes throughout both the development of the score and the interpretive performance based on it. A single score can also be applied to a variety of media and forms through recoding the visualized data. (Honolulu HI)
