Victoria Vesna is an artist, professor and Chair of the Department of Design | Media Arts at the UCLA School of the Arts. Vesna's work can be defined as experimental research that connects networked environments to physical public spaces. She explores how communication technologies effect collective behavior, and shift perceptions of identity in relation to scientific innovation. Vesna is currently building a 'community of people with no time' and is exploring the performative aspects of cellular telephones in public spaces. In 2000 she completed her Ph.D. at CAiiA, University of Wales, entitled "Networked Public Spaces: An Investigation into Virtual Embodiement." Her home page is located at http://vv.arts.ucla.edu
