Norie Neumark & Maria Miranda (Australia)

is a new media collaboration between Norie Neumark and Maria Miranda.

Norie Neumark
is a sound/radio/new media artist. Her radiophonic works have been broadcast by the Listening Room, ABC and New American Radio and Performing Arts. She is co-editor of At a Distance: Precursors to Internet Art and Activism (MIT Press, forthcoming 2004).

Maria Miranda
is a visual/new media artist. Recently she completed her MVA at Sydney College of the Arts. She has worked as a graphic designer as well as drawn comix. She co-edited Drawing Away: an Australian women’s comic book.
We have been collaborating on new media art projects for 10 years. For the last 5 years, we have been working as Out-of-Sync. We are interested in finding ways for sound and image to work together in new media, so that neither is hegemonic but there is a play and tension between them.
Our work has recently taken a fictive swerve into the imaginary science of ‘pataphysics. This non-sense, humorous science sits beside and perturbs Science. The ‘pataphyscial turn has brought our concern with the cultural effects of science together with a playful approach to writing and performance.
In 2002 we were invited to participate in the Solar Circuit new media residency on Maria Island, and Journey to the C/enter was a result of this residency (‘Maid in Cyberspace’, Montreal Feb 2003). We are also members of ICOLS ( and the official Rumourologists in the Local Unit of Missing Links. We performed at the ICOLS launch, MCA, Sydney July 2002.
Previous collaborations include CD-Roms, Shock in the Ear; installations, including Shock in the Ear, Dead Centre: the body with organs, Volcano and Museum of Rumour (a installation); as well as works which can be accessed through our website
