Jill Scott was born in 1952, in Melbourne, Australia and has been working and
living in Switzerland since 2003. Currently she is Professor for  
Research in the Institute Cultural Studies in Art, Media and Design at  
the Zurich University of the Arts (ZhdK) in Zürich and Co-Director of  
the Artists-in-Labs Program (a collaboration with the Ministry for  
Culture, Switzerland) which places artists from all disciplines into  
physics, computer, engineering and life science labs to learn about  
scientific research and make creative interpretations. She is also  
Vice Director of the Z-Node PHD program on art and science at the  
University of Plymouth, UK-a program with 16 international research  
candidates.Her recent publications include: Artists-in-labs Processes  
of Inquiry: 2006 Springer/Vienna/New York, and Coded Characters Hatje  
Cantz 2002, Ed. Marille Hahne. Her education includes: PhD, University  
of Wales (UK) MA USF, San Francisco, as well as a Degree in Education  
(Uni Melbourne) and a Degree in Art and Design (Victoria College of  
the Arts). Since 1975, She has exhibited many video artworks,  
conceptual performances and interactive environments in USA, Japan,  
Australia and Europe. Her most recent works
involve the construction of interactive media and electronic  
sculptures based on
studies she has conducted in neuroscience- particularly the somatic  
sensory system artificial skin (e-skin) 2003-2007 and on neuro-retinal  
behaviour in relation to human eye disease (The Electric Retina-2008)  
and on dermatome and skin behaviour in relation to UV radiation  
(Dermatone- 2009--2010)

  Neuromedia promotes a trans-disciplinary venture with a number of  
aims. Some of
these might be to generate a higher level of aesthetic and  
representational discourse within the scientific community itself, to  
open up the relations between artists, clinical analyzers and basic  
researchers in neurobiology and to create a transitional catalyst  
between the methodologies of science and the general public based on  
more scientifically robust knowledge.  In relation to media art,  
Neuromedia may also have the added task of developing more responsive  
HCI interfaces which incorporate a clearer understanding of
neural behaviour or contribute to more creative sensory technologies for the
disabled or visually impaired. However, Neuromedia should not be seen  
as art therapy nor scientific education. Instead it should become a  
poetic hybrid of artistic interpretation and scientific research; a  
grey zone, which actually alludes to the essential components of  
neural behaviour of translation, contraction, adhesion, expansion and  
retraction embodied in the emetic analysis vertebrate neural system  
development and function. In other words it should be about human
