Greg Niemeyer founded the Stanford University Digital Art Center, which he directed until 2001, when he was appointed at UC Berkeley as Assistant Professor for New Media. At UC Berkeley, he is involved in the development of the Center for New Media, focusing on the critical analysis of the impact of new media on human experiences.

Justin Underhill is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities at UC Berkeley. He earned his PhD in Art History from Berkeley, completing a dissertation, “World Art and the Illumination of Virtual Space,” that uses advanced software to reconstruct the architectural contexts in which works of art were displayed. Such research explores the relation between pictures and the lighting of the space in which they were originally viewed. Underhill continued this work in his prior appointment as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities at the University of Southern California. Presently, among other projects, he is developing art.rip, a site dedicated to digital capture, forensic visualization, and the history of art.
