Fred Adam Artist multimedia
Born in France without any plugin, Fred Adam's meta keywords were very simple at first. If you have ever installed the Real Player plugin in your computer, you may have heard his voice. He is now distributed with every plugin. He says, "Welcome to Real Player Network." He is confident that his voice will survive on the hard disks of humanity and that he will never be truly extinct. He believes that someone clever will someday find a way to start from his "real" voice and deduce and recompose his mouth, teeth, and finally, all of his body and soul from these codes. Currently Fred lives in Spain where he is thinking of drinking the world as a fresh Coke and becoming a super portal as beautiful as a classic painting. He is now 33 and 1/3 keywords old: fitness, sports, cooking, gardening, home decorating, vacations, hotels, adventure travel, investing, stocks, credit cards, nutrition, fitness, life insurance, home buying, home improvement, pets, interior design, cars, computers, books, jewelry, flowers, wine, sports, music, movies, bikes, clothing, electronics, computer games.

Andy Deck Media artist
Andy Deck makes media art. On the Internet his public address system is called It sounds a critical tone at a time when media mergers are portrayed as the emergence of progress. Deck interrupts regular network programming to announce a general sociocultural emergency in progress. His aesthetic program seeks a cultural break from the modernization of passive consumerism. Applying techniques of détournement, parody, and defamiliarization, he engages both the politics and semantics of interactivity. Combining code, text, and image, he demonstrates new patterns of participation and control that distinguish online presence and representation from previous artistic practices.

Verónica Perales Artista multimedia
Now I'm going fast on my bike in the street. Too fast and bound for a fall. But I'm looking at the shop windows for the reflection of myself. I want to see myself in the context. Everything needs its surrounding to exist. The reflection of myself exists in front of me, the same way that I exist in front of other people that exist in front of the rest of the world. Everyone is looking for proxies of themselves, trying to have an a-proxi-mate idea of what we are. This is the only way that we grasp reality, just smelling, not touching. Sometimes the proxy sensations are strong, and we forget they're not original.

On the bus stop glass, there is a poster with a tiger. (It's a fearsome poster.)
