Apologies for the personal message here in the last dark days of the year... I am forwarding this below message to crumb from Empyre in case any of the crumb list members want to contribute to the discussion. I was fortunate to work with Beatriz and the preemptive media team when Steve Dietz and Anthony Kiendl and I curated the exhibition Database Imaginary nearly a decade ago now... I have followed her work since then, at Eyebeam and through her Creative Capital support, and would urge anyone not familiar with Beatriz's work to get to know it, and to support her last project, the anti-cancer survival kit in its realisation. http://www.rockethub.com/profiles/64138-beatriz-da-costa

Best wishes to you all for twenty thirteen.
Sarah

Dear Friends,

On behalf of -empyre-, we want to express our deepest sympathy to the close friends and family of Beatriz da Costa, who passed away on Thursday night after a long and courageous battle against cancer.  Beatriz was a co-founder with Jaime Schulte and Brooke Singer of Preemptive Media, a former collaborator of Critical Art Ensemble, and Associate Professor of Art at the University of California, Irvine, where she specialized in the intersections of art, science, engineering, and politics.  As so many of you know, Beatriz was an innovator in the use of wetware in her artistic interventions and more recently had been experimenting with the potential of interspecies co-production in promoting the responsible use of natural resources and environmental sustainability.  She also was a leader in our broad field of adapting emergent technologies to address the politics and configurations of social justice.

Beatriz was always one of the first to respond to our e-mails about monthly -empyre- themes, and was a brilliant interlocutor on -empyre-.   At exhibitions, conferences, and when visiting Cornell, we always marveled at her warm generosity with students and members of the public who requested further discussion about her projects.  Yes, she was the epitomy of an artist experimenting with the flexibilities of soft-skinned spaces.

In the next few months, we will be organizing a special monthly discussion in her memory on wetware and interspecies co-production.  Please feel free to contact us if you would be interested in participating as a featured guest.

All our best,

Tim and Renate
