Luke Matthew Hones Luke Matthew Hones has pursued a career highlighted by innovation in response to the many challenges facing media arts organizations. In ten years at the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) in San Francisco, he developed a model video preservation program and closed-captioning center, attracting funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, Toshiba and NEC. His initiative to train dance performers to create their own documentation or include video in their work led to the creation of a consortium of arts groups funded by the National Initiative to Preserve American Dance. Other concrete achievements include overseeing the technical installation of BAVC into a new, accessible, state-of-the-art facility in 1996, developing a plan for BAVC to serve as Executive Producer on projects for noncommercial clients, and initiating Joblink, a city-funded program to train limited-income people for careers in the multimedia field. In 1999 he became the Executive Director of Artists' Television Access (ATA), a volunteer-run media arts center located in the heart of San Francisco's burgeoning Mission District. At ATA he has focused on fundraising, improving the organization's financial health and technical infrastructure and hiring staff. He has moderated panels at Media industry, Media arts and Arts Conservation conferences. He is a consultant with media art centers in the U.S. and writes frequently for DV Magazine. luke@atasite.org

Kent Howie Kent Howie is on ATA's Board of Directors. He received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Kent's work is about common feelings and experiences and is not interested in finding his own signature style. Themes that run through Kent's work are things like death, childhood, sadness, suicide and the enigmatic. Kent likes the idea of being a different artist every day. He has most recently exhibited in the Jochen Gerz Anthology of Art (http://www.anthology-of-art.net). Kent has been very interested in working with all kinds of groups and individuals and collectives and has facilitated over 100 exhibitions, screenings and performances. Kent has spent the last three years exploring televisions' ubiquitiy within our culture and the media's vampiric introjection through ATA's weekly television show (ATV). Kent draws, writes and likes movies like "Dawn of the Dead" and "Satantango." He works for Project Open Hand's H.I.V department. Kent currently has five baby parakeets and the world's oldest living canary "Butterball Jones" living with him right now and he thinks it's funny. Kent likes words like snowflake, rat's ass, lovening, fuck dumb shit, fatass, bastardo, Finkelstein, pumpkin, zombie, pretentia and oyster. kent@atasite.org
