Ursula Endlicher is a New York based artist that works in the intersection between Internet, performance and multimedia. She is well-known for translating HTML language into movement in the form of choreographies although she is generally interested in the new and possible ways of interpreting media systems and data. Ursula sees the World Wide Web as a live theatre play opened to the interaction of the audience and understands web interfaces as allegories of code. Based on this principle Ursula constantly looks for the perfect web allegory with the aim of making link structures and web architecture more physical and as a way to question the limits between the internet and the physical reality.
