Electronic Artist # 1

Eva and Franco Mattes, internationally known as 0100101110101101.org, are "a couple of restless European con-artists who use non-conventional communication tactics to obtain the largest visibility with the minimal effort.

Past works include staging a hoax involving a completely made-up artist, ripping off the Holy See, and spreading a computer virus as a work of art." (taken from here)

I really liked the series of performance art recreations that they did using second life avatars to recreate the original event inside a "synthetic" world - particularly Chris Burden's "Shoot" stuck out, probably because Scott showed us his work in Sculpture last week.
