Biography

Net artist Alexei Shulgin has gained renown with his ongoing “386DX” performances, in which he manipulates an antiquated computer with Microsoft Windows and an Intel processor to perform digital renditions of popular music hits, while a text-to-speech voice “sings” the lyrics. He has also produced interactive works, such as Form Art (1997), in which he uses HTML to program minimal forms and blank boxes that require viewers to aimlessly click through to discover more boxes. Recently Shulgin has left the online environment to focus on the production of tangible, technology-based objects for his gallery-cum-gadget shop, Electroboutique, which sells distorted screens and high-tech toys.
