Sara Goodman is a poet and video artist interested in the way hardware, software, and interfaces influence us as humans. She likes setting up systems she can interface with that continually loop and deviate over time. She currently teaches high school students video art exploration, creative writing, and lit classes in Chicago.
Paul Hertz, the curator of 4our X 4our, has worked with algorthmic art for over forty years, with and without computers. Now a full time artist, he taught new media art history and studio courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University.

Mark Klink, has been and done many things: Swept floors, worked in a factory, been an athlete, a minor government official, a life guard, a computer programmer, and a traditional print maker. For twenty years he taught children and other educators how to use computers. But the thing he likes best (beside family) is making curious pictures.
