    Kenneth Edmund Rinaldo creates interactive multimedia works which look to the intersection of natural and tech­nological systems. His works are influenced by theories on living systems, artificial intelligence, artificial life, and the nature and organization of matter. He believes it is imper­ative that technological systems develop a sensitive ecolo­gy which is modeled on the principles of living systems, so they will inherently fuse to permit an emergent, interde­pendent earth. Kenneth Rinaldo was born in 1958 in New York. His grandfather was a Parisian artist and his mother and father are both contemporary artists. At eighteen he studied to be a ballet dancer in New York City. Returning to school at twenty he earned an A.S. Degree in Computer Science from Canada College (1982),a 8.A in Communications from The University of California, Santa Barbara (1984) and an M.F.A in Conceptual Art from San Francisco State University (1991). His works have been dis­played and Collected in the U.S. and abroad at such shows as the Home Show in Seoul Korea (1996), V2, Dutch Electronic Art Festival in Rotterdam, Holland (1995), Image Du Future in Montreal, Canada, (1992 & 1995) and SIGGRAPH, Los Angeles (1994).
