While the art world is still looking for a new Banksy to appear on a random overpass somewhere. I have been creating public art for for years in the the "Global Village". The Internet is public domain. My blogs, sites, posts, videos and apps are my art. Performances occur online within social interactions now and forever.
That is my "way", TAO.

It All Began While Working on a Series Called "What We Found on Craigslist..." -Chase Alias
So I was on one of the online hookup services. I can't remember which one. And I was feelin' very feisty. A ding came from my computer and I opened the instant messenger box:

Please hold while we ask thatonekid22 if he'd like to chat with you. You are now chatting with thatonekid22. thatonekid22 has closed his IM window. You are now chatting with thatonekid22. thatonekid22: heyy thatonekid22: sorry >> its ok >> so you ever thought about another kind of job? thatonekid22: yeah thatonekid22: but im in school still so thatonekid22: college >> Thats good Kid >> Stay in school thatonekid22: yeaaa thatonekid22: you >> \Im glad I didn't thatonekid22: stay in school? >> yup >> yup thatonekid22: why >> If I had stayed in school I wouldn't be where I am today thatonekid22: ooo and u like wat u do thatonekid22: wat do u do again >> I am an artist thatonekid22: oooo niceee >> and you my young friend have just become my newest piece of art thatonekid22: thank you The Image is what thatonekid22 was responding to when we connected online, the I M conversation really occurred between him and Chase. The concept to combine the image and conversation just happened. "Who I M" is a story of Chase Alias and his adventures online in Gay chatrooms. Something that has become a ubiquitous part of our community. Immersion Artist, David Pollack, who creates characters like Chase Alias, is well aware of the ever-present opportunity to create a "mimesis" with his works. Mimesis, It is the imitation or representation of aspects of the sensible world, especially human actions, in literature and art. Who I M Series, 2010 - 2014, Affective Memory Screen Capture by Immersionist Chase Alias, includes Instant Message Conversations.
