Agatha Appears was started as a pure art project, funny story about two young people who meet at night. Story combines principles of stage design, film montage and html documents, common internet stereotypes and net critics. It imitates the process of teleportation, but in the process of making Agatha appeared a new server http://www.teleportica.org, where datas of real people, who want to be teleported are stored. Agatha Appears was a starting point for two other projects as well: http://will.teleportica.org, and http://art.teleportica.org.
About Olia Lialina
A pioneer of net art, artist and film and new media critic Olia Lialina is well known for her famous browser-art piece, My Boyfriend Came Back From The War (1996). The work comprises multiple black-and-white hyperlinked frames of images and text through which viewers can navigate different narrative pathways. “If something is in the net,” Lialina has said, “it should speak in net language.” The piece has inspired numerous tribute artworks and remixes, including one from the notorious duo JODI. Lialina is also known for using herself as a model in experimentations with animated GIFs, and is credited with founding one of the earliest web galleries, Art Teleportacia, which she uses to exhibit her own work.
