Helen Varley Jamieson

Helen is a theatre and digital media artist, and an internet professional. A diverse career has led to her current experimental work in the use of the internet as a venue for performance, specifically in bringing remote performers together in live theatrical events. She calls this new art form cyberformance. She is a founding member of the globally dispersed cyberformance troupe Avatar Body Collision. Helen created her first web page in 1994, and has worked professionally in the internet industry since 1997 doing web site construction and maintenance, web copywriting, consultation and project management. She also teaches workshops and gives lectures and presentations about her work, and writes all kinds of stuff. In 2008, Helen completed a Master of Arts (Research) on cyberformance, at Queensland University of Technology.
