A nonprofit 501(C)3 corporation located in Albuquerque, NM

Mission and Vision Statement:

We envision a time when new research practices integrate art, science and design in a discipline that goes beyond traditional practices. The mission of Intermedia Projects is to support research that will contribute to this new structure of art, science, and design. Intermedia Projects supports and enables projects at the nexus of art, science, and design, through public performances; presentation of scholarly work at conferences and in publications; education and workshops; and through the development of new forms of communication for this new discipline.

Where do we do what we do?

Our nonprofit headquarters are in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the construction of the gallery is finished. The new gallery is connected to Jack Ox's 1940's stucco house. In this building works managed and/or owned by Intermedia Projects Inc will be exhibited for sale, from which the profits will support further collaborative and creative works. The building is designed by the designer/builder, Justin Wiseman. The lighting designer is Allen Scheuch from As Light Works, Cologne, Germany. Many of the collaborative activities of the nonprofit will be financed through the sales of these previously created works, donated to the corporation.

He was Chief Technology Officer of music producer Chris Blackwell’s website, winning the Webby Award for best streaming music and video in 2001. He was tech director of True Majority. In 2004 he turned to neuroscience to focus on neural network applications for AI, receiving a Ph.D. for a dissertation on semantic attention studying the neural correlates of meaning. He taught in the psychology dept. of The City College of New York for 10 years until retiring in 2019.

Mario Alberico Artist, Advocate, Advisor-Managing Director at Accenture, a $62B global management consulting, technology, and digital services company; he has been an artist and curator alongside his career in Financial Services.
