Ed Osborn is a sound and media artist who has performed, exhibited, lectured, and held residencies in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and South America. His sounding artworks take many forms including installation, sculpture, radio, video, performance, and public projects. They demonstrate a visceral sense of space, aurality, and motion combined with a precise economy of materials. Ranging from rumbling fans and sounding train sets to squirming music boxes and delicate feedback networks, Osborn’s kinetic and audible pieces function as resonating systems that are by turns playful and oblique, engaging and enigmatic.

He is on the faculty of the Visual Arts Department at Brown University (Providence, RI) and has taught at the University of California at Davis (Davis, CA), the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), the California College of Arts and Crafts (Oakland, CA), and the University of California at Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, CA). He is represented by the Catharine Clark Gallery (San Francisco, CA).

Salvador Aragon is Professor of Information Systems at IE Business School. In his own words: “I am currently researching the role of information technologies in the business organization, their relevance as an engine for innovation and transformation, and how they are managed”. He is also interested in the development of new markets and services in digital convergence, studying, for example, how mobiles and interactive television are moving toward each other’s territory, permitting young people to arrange to meet through teletext messages. Furthermore, professor Aragón has researched the theoretical concept of digital convergence. From a more practical perspective, he has also studied the management of information systems in Spanish firms, and, in collaboration with MIT, the definition of new services on mobile platforms.
