Trond Lossius is a Bergen-based electronic artist who is also known for his involvement in and leadership of BEK, Bergen senter for Elektronisk Kunst. Trond now has a three year grant at the Art College which sounds like a sort of creative practice-based PhD-like deal. Sounds brilliant.

Trond recently started blogging at Lostlog and there’s already lots of interesting news there. For instance, Kurt Ralske, an American video artist, is giving a talk at the Art College in about twenty minutes. Jay David Bolter is giving a talk here in one and a half hours. Jan Rune Holmevik is defending a PhD on open source and the humanisties today and tomorrow. Scott Rettberg‘s giving a talk on collaboration in electronic writing next week. Anders Fagerjord is coming up on February 4 to talk about his work. And there’s all the locals! For a small town, Bergen is a veritable rocking hive of new media activity! Yay!
