MTAA (M. River & T. Whid Art Associates)
is a New York City based conceptual and net art collaboration of
the artists Mark River and T.Whid. Their motto is "Meaning
in Misunderstanding". Their work has been described as "[focusing]
on performative, participatory acts of commodity exchange via an
online hub" in which "projects do not discriminate between
physical and virtual object status, but are more concerned with
how artistic value is ascribed to remnants of online processes."
(boy--what a mouthful ;-))

Suitcases", Art & Idea, Mexico City; the curated publication
"9/9 Review of Practical Art", Paris, France; "Use
Nor Ornament", The Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art, Sunderland,
