Shift has a short profile called Miss Taken Identity of artist Skawennati Tricia Fragnito. It’s not much of an interview but Fragnito does raise an interesting question about her job title. What is it now?

New media complicated my identity as an artist because, suddenly, there were new definitions to add the previous stack. Everyone in Silicon Valley seemed to want to be called “artist.” The people who resized and compressed images for banner ads were artists. Start-up CEOs were suddenly artists too. But then there were also these amazing net artists and code artists on the scene who had never made a pretty picture in their lives, but who certainly had something to say about the status quo. And these artists were focused on a very different kind of content than I had been.
