Judy Malloy is a writer of hyper-narrative and an information artist. Her
hyper-narratives, including Its name was Penelope, Forward Anywhere (with
Cathy Marshall); l0ve0ne, and the Roar of Destiny, have been published,
shown, and reviewed internationally.
In a recent issue of Modern Fiction Studies (MFS), Jaishree K. Odin writes
that "Malloy uses the fluidity of the hypertextual medium to create a
poetic text, which, in spite of its fragmentation and discontinuity, leads
to a reading experience that is very satisfying because it allows the
reader greater creativity as to the form the reading will take... In
Malloy's text, the visual is transformed into the verbal. The border
between text and image dissolves, and image becomes the text."
Judy Malloy has been Editor of Leonardo Electronic News and an artist in
residence at Xerox PARC. She has taught Web design at the San Francisco Art
Institute, and she currently works on the Internet as Arts Wire's Network
I looked for an understanding of the Internet as a public art space, an
understanding of the Web's hypertextual capabilities, content, depth,
innovation, and impact, both visual and verbal. I viewed the sites on three
separate computers: my home laptop, my local library's Internet access
machine, and a college media lab. Since I believe that Web sites are a form
of public art that should be accessible, if submitted projects did not run
on any of these platforms, I voted no.
