Scott Kildall (USA) and Victoria Scott (Canada) started their collaboration in 2006, after meeting in the Art & Technology graduate program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Their first project series, 2×2, experimented with physically materializing the psychology of online relational spaces and was conceived at the Banff Centre for the Arts as part of the conceptual art residency, the Future of Idea Art. In 2007, they were awarded the Mixed Realities Juried International Networked Art commission, for their second project, No Matter. Both the physical and simulated installations of No Matter premiered simultaneously on February 7, 2008 in both Second Life and Emerson College, Boston. This was recently shown at the Subtle Technologies Festival in Toronto in June, 2009. Their most recent relational installation, Ghost in The Machine, provides a hired philosopher to assist the public in drawing or writing a response to the question “What is the Ghost in the Machine?”
