First Name: 

Brian Springer is a media artist whose work explores ways in which new communications technologies redefine notions of public space and private enterprise. He has exploited social and technological loopholes, extracting images, sounds and data from within traditionally closed systems of power. His 1995 documentary Spin uses unpackaged and uncensored satellite news feeds to offer a behind-the-scenes look at the American political process. In his recent work, Springer has strategized methods for recovering hidden information from digital text files.
