artist statement

As art becomes less elitist and more cybernetic in its behavior and cultural performance, it takes on rhetoric's early role as persuasive critique of everyday life. As a result of this movement out of art elitism and back into everyday life, art itself becomes integrated into the workings of everyday life by situating itself in corporations, universities, governments and, more importantly, the fluid vistas of the vast electrosphere where all of these "cultures" collide and mix.

By trying to fully immerse ourselves in these colliding "cultures," we hope to explore the interrelationship between digital narrative and rhetoric using what has become the in-progress language of the World Wide Web and its strategic positioning in the new media economy.
