Deck makes public art for the Internet that resists generic
categorization: collaborative drawing spaces, game-like search
engines, problematic interfaces, informative art. Deck has made
art software since 1990, initially using it to produce short films.
Since 1994, he has worked with the Web using the sites artcontext.com
and andyland.net. An avid critic of corporate culture and militarism,
Deck's hybrid news-art projects have addressed a variety of issues
that are regularly misrepresented in the mass media. In the interest
of preserving the available alternative media, and sensing the
drift of the Internet toward a marketing and entertainment medium,
he has allied himself with open source software developers, optimizing
his work for use with Linux operating system, and publishing source
code for much of his software.
