Geoffrey Lillemon (1981 USA) brings a classic romantic painting and drawing style to technology to reinterpret artistic practice. As one of the leading artists of the Net Art Movement, Lillemon has consistently foregrounded the interplay between the digital and physical world in his work, blending the traditional mediums with interactive animation that responds to human touch, brainwaves, and even heartbeats. Using various art forms, from mixed and moving media to literature and soundscapes to classic portraiture, he creates works of hallucinatory poetry that reach into the infinite depths of the subconscious where the real and the imaginary interact. Lillemon has exhibited internationally as Oculart, including being the Invite d'Honneur at the Centre Pompidou, was a founding member of studio Champagne Valentine, and is currently an artist in residence at Random, Amsterdam, Netherlands

"More-Inc. is an artistic simulation of lifestyle in a capitalist culture. The project is dedicated to employee number 12995 and to his frustrations and angst. Meyer analyses, with irony, the human being's role in a world dominated by corporations and the New Economy. The user is invited to participate in the daily routine of a faceless employee and to interact with the endless meetings, paper pushing, form filing, homogeneity, subversion, and anxiety that are typical in the corporate work world. Later, the user's interaction travels beyond the job to employee 12995's domestic life and dreamy subconscious leading to an experiential crescendo realized in breakdown, dissimulation, and resurrection."
