Ursula Endlicher's work resides on the intersection of Internet, performance and multi-media installation. Since 1994 the Internet has an impact on her practice where she bridges the Web and physical reality. Her focus lies in analyzing the social, political and structural components of the Web while translating its hidden architectures and languages - such as HTML - into choreography for performances, into layouts for visualizations, installations or objects, or into notation for music.

Endlicher's recent projects include Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited (2006-09), a ten-part Live/Web performance series that utilizes Web Code as choreography. This series as well as the project html_butoh, a web-based participatory performance commissioned by Turbulence.org in 2006, are built on the html-movement-library, a database for small video clips enacting the html language through movement. She created Website
Impersonations: The Amazons (.at versus .com), an interactive multi-media installation with real-time web-feed navigable via the "mouse-chair" for which she received a production grant by the Austrian Cultural Forum NY in 2006. A presentation of her web works including Famous For One Spam was commissioned by the Whitney Museum's artport in 2004. Web Performer 1.0 was among the first net art works included into Rhizome's ArtBase in 1999. She produced her very first piece for the Internet - Left/Right - for The Thing Vienna BBS in 1994.
