"Future in Motion, A History of Tomorrow's Interfaces"

A dropout from University of Texas's Advanced Communications Theory  
Laboratory, Mason Dixon, then Sfear Bebopanaut, went to work for a  
small internet start-up, iChat, designing the first version of Yahoo's  
chat community. After iChat's IPO, Sfear organized a team of hackers  
to detect vulnerabilities in electronic voting systems before the 2000  
presidential election. After 9/11, Sfear changed his name to Mason  
Dixon and moved to Chicago, where he now resides as an instructor of  
Motion Graphics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Mason's  
professional career includes clients such as Apple, Adobe, IBM, Dell,  
Nokia, Motorola, Sony, Universal Studios, Disney, the Army War College  
and the Navy Interactive Courseware Department. He has also designed  
public sculptures and video performances for the Museum of  
Contemporary Art, SIGGRAPH, South By Southwest, Lollapalooza, Boston  
Center for the Arts, Cambridge University UK, US Botanical Gardens in  
DC and the Burning Man freedom festival. Mason Dixon's work has  
investigated the specific subjects of: the moving image as a  
performance medium; aesthetics and warfare; identity hacking; and  
public art. In the last 2 years he has produced over 70 exhibitions in  
10 US cities and has shown with artists such Mia Liu, Carl Cox,  
Shepard Fairy, String Cheese Incident, American Analog Set and DJ  
Spooky.
