 +I grew up in West Berlin. It was like living on a small island that was occupied by the British, American and French armies, in the middle of a communist ocean. A part of a city with its own rules and rights where people were anti-fascist, but also anti-communist, against war in general and against nuclear energy, for everything organic and for cultural diversity. After the fall of the wall I spend a lot of time in the squats that arose everywhere in the former East Berlin. Galleries were open to everyone, with sculpture gardens created in common and artistic works of any type popped up in these large abandoned areas: film, video, installation, painting, sculpture, dance and theater. It was an artistic exchange with no barriers, no notion of class difference or background. This was accompanied by a thriving electronic music scene that occupied the old cellars and bunkers or the streets with, for example, the 'Love Parade' or the 'Carnival of Cultures', where different cultures of the world parade with their music, their dances and colorful costumes. I was young and my family wanted me to do a real career and art was not so much part of that, so I studied international business worked with architecture and real estate and traveled extensively over the world to fulfill one part of my dreams and passions, but the love to do art never left me. So I continued to practice with whatever material was convenient. More photography on my travels, paintings and then larger scale glass mobiles and sculptures for architectural projects.

 +In my art practice I have been drawn towards identity and how people form or reflect on their own identity. I see identity as a fluid state, everything passing from one form into another. 
 +Relating to time, it is the moment that I consider the formative part in life, the hour, the day, without overemphasizing on any particular one too much. It’s not so much the big visible things, but the little valued or unvalued and unrecognised parts of our character, our social format, time and being that make up the bigger part in life.  I am also interested in how we look at people or objects with pre-conceptions and how we convey universal messages with images through this bias. Living in Paris and being confronted with mass tourism, one quickly gets confronted with the superficiality but also efficiency a simple image can procure and globally serves all of its main purposes. The double soil behind every claim or description that manifests itself in the imagination, there is always something else behind it. That second look interests me in all fields, the questioning of the one truth, instead allowing multiple truth’ and path’ to exist at the same time and the intriguing mixture of myth and reality.

 +**Aristotle Roufanis (online)**
 +
 +Born and raised in Greece, I've originally studied Civil Engineering at City University, London. 
 +Devoted a good 12 years of my life into trying to force and artful approach into construction before realising this was never going to make me happy professionally.
 +Switched careers to become a full time visual artist in 2017 and although it can be very hard sometimes, I can't even imagine going back to my previous life.
 +
 +I've spent the most part of my adult life in London, but I recently moved back to Greece as starting a family and a new career can be a struggle cost-wise in London. Still living there mentally though and secretely hope to go back.
 +
 +I have been mainly working through photography but I am very eager to expand into the new digital mediums, like VR/AR, projection mapping installations etc. 
 +
 +I am really looking forward to spending time with fellow artists on a weekly basis and exchanging thoughts.
 +Also very jealous of the people who get to do this course in the old fashioned, physical way.

 +I grew up in the Soviet Union on the other side of the so-called Iron Curtain. I had left Moscow at the beginning of Perestroika and from 1989 I have lived in the West. I am an independent curator, based in Dubai and London. I hold a degree in Art History from Moscow State University, an MA in Art Business and a Diploma in Curating Contemporary art (from Sotheby's Institute of Art in London and New York respectively).
 +
 +As the Curatorial Director of Andak gallery in Dubai, through my exhibition-making I investigated different aspects of national identity building in the post-Soviet states of Central Asia.  
 +
 +Recently I have opened my own gallery space in Deptford, London.  Seager gallery’s programme will be to represent digital artists with a focus on projects involving science and technology or driven by ecological concerns. As a gallerist and as a curator I am keen to enquire into the relationship between art and digital technology. How does digital art exist within the canon of art history? What is the future of the gallery in the digital age? Do galleries become ‘digital platforms’ or could they become obsolete if people don’t physically visit them? What form does gallery organisation take? What skills are required to run such a gallery? 
 +I am interested to develop my knowledge of contemporary art production - how artists are funding their artwork and making artworks. I am interested to reinforce my technical knowledge through creative projects.

 +Hey, very excited to see you all. I'm Leah, independent artist lived and worked in Beijing before. I used to do some installations and videos. Now I am trying to do some interactive programs(I'm not quite sure actually...). I am very interested in changing rules in game(some old games, video games, competitions,etc..), and exploring the collection between art and game. Recently, I have been thinking about experience. This might be a new project I will do in the next two years.
