| About Don Foresta |
Don Foresta is a network research artist who has been working for more than thirty years to develop the network as an artistic tool. An ex-patriot living in Paris since the early 1970s, he is a recipient of the prestigious Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture.
He was a commissioner to the 1982 Paris Biennale for which he organized a project of image exchange by telephone between French and American photographers/artists. In 1986 he was a commissioner to the 42nd Venice Biennale, creating a temporary communication laboratory using interactive computer technology to connect artists in 15 cities throughout the world.
Foresta is currently building, as coordinator of an international team, the permanent high bandwidth art network MARCEL using Internet 2 & 3 to connect institutions internationally. MARCEL is a permanent broadband interactive network and web site dedicated to artistic, educational and cultural experimentation, exchange between art and science and collaboration between art and industry.
