Tota Hasegawa
Microphone Fiend,
See it on the Apple G4 located to the left of the big screens

Breath-activated digital art? Youíll have to blow to believe. Japanese artist Tota Hasegawa takes whimsical advantage of the interactive possibilities of electronic art with his CD-ROM piece Microphone Fiend that requires user "input" via an external microphone attached to a computer. Wipe snow from a windshield, spit fire from Godzillaís mouth, or spin a car out of control by simply breathing into the mike.
Art Jones
See it on any of the Apple Computers located at the TTPixels area. Just click on the "Art Jones" button in the Launcher
Jones's digital art, featured in previous Pixels programs, blends popular music, visual culture, and the politics of power into a strange and strong brew.

Young-Hae Chang and Heavy Industries
The Struggle Continues,
Lotus Blossom

Young-Hae Chang's Heavy Industries is a Korean art group whose Web-based work strips multimedia to its roots--text--and then employs those words to make gripping, dramatic stories and exhortations. Chang's two works, The Struggle Continues and Lotus Blossom are fine examples of restrained aesthetic used to wonderful effect.
Niko Stumpo
Destroy Everything

Destroy Everything, a web piece by Italian Niko Stumpo exploits the medium's ability to blend graphic design with hyperkinetic moving pictures and ties it all together with equal parts of paranoia and fairy tale.
Erik Loyer

A sequel to a work featured at the 1999 Festival, Erik Loyer's Chroma continues the exploration of how the traditional form of the novel changes when it meets with the graphic and interactive possibilities offered by the Web.

Lullaby for a Dead Fly

Lullaby for a dead Fly may turn you into a killer. Amsterdam-based artist Mouchette transforms your cursor into a deadly swatter in this piece that steps inside the consciousness of a fly.
Cyril Scott
Helico with flying question
Op art is alive and well on the Web in the form of Cyril Scott's playful and experimental online projects. This Paris-based multimedia artist turns pixels upside down and sends them bouncing off the corners of your browser in this frenetic piece. Two other featured works reveal a cetain digital, Warholian charm: animated colors and patterns become the hypnotic, interior world of the eponymous starlet in Star(2000) and three browser windows become an endless, cyclical cartoon sea of aquamarine blu ein Surf(2000).
