ROBERTA BREITMORE was, for 9 years a private performance of a simulated person. In an era or alternatives, she became an objectified alternative personality, reflecting the values of her culture and penetrating trends such as EST, WEIGHTWATCHERS and most significantly, experienced resonant nuances of alienation.

DiNA, is a telepresent oracle and is absolutely autonomous. Her motto is "artificial intelligence is better than no intelligence".  She feeds from AIML (Artificial Identity Markup Language) and the flowing brain of the internet itself. She can talk to anyone, or anything that has ever been on the net, processing Internet content in real time.
