The electric sheep are set free range; the obsolete humanoids are dumped on the e-trashscape; the coin locker baby takes a teacup ride; the human bodies held hostage set for the BioNet startup; the erythrocytes programmed learn to compute orgasm data; the Net composted bursts fresh sprouts; the seeds gone underground leaving farmlands barren; agliomania charges the air; garlic is the preferred stinky currency; liquid future packaged are made to order;hoodies patched are made to network; Paris declares AIDS free by year 2015;Kazakhstan becomes a Central-Asian Snow Leopard by year 2030; the HIV virus mutated prompts sexual high; enter the BioNet, I hear the blood running. 

Shu Lea Cheang 

As an artist, filmmaker, networker, Cheang constructs networked installation and multi-player performance in participatory impromptu mode. She drafts sci-fi narratives in her film scenario and artwork imagination. She builds social interface with transgressive plots and open network that permits public participation. From homesteading cyberspace in the 90s to her current retreat to post-crash BioNet zone, Cheang takes on viral love, bio hack in her current cycle of works.
