Project»Viaatant! Home Page



This was my first Internet art project. It was a nonsensical homepage spoof about an underground animal-alien society, which may or may not have been just a canvas, an excuse to learn the craft and rant, share links, collaborate with friends, BE on the web. Although at the time I truly was a member of the "First Church of Appliantology" founded by L. Ron Hoover. When I made the site I had no fucking idea what I was doing. (act first think later) Yet it ended up containing all the usual HTML suspects like server-side image maps, mail forms, javascript rollovers, sponsor banners, and custom buttons, wallpapers, animations. The website was lost for many years but discovered that the Wayback Machine at had preserved the only existing copies. In 2009 I reconstructed this strange beast of a website and gave it the domain name that it always deserved.

The whole 'viaatant' idea grew out of discussions with a friend named Ronnie Diamond who met one while traveling abroad. Additional contributions in concept/material came from co-conspirators Andy Tegethoff, Brian Womble, and Trevor Thornton. ZZZZHHHHHTTTTTT.

Below is the antiquated meta keywords tag that the site used which I remember I had stolen verbatim from an early Church of the Sub Genius site. These tags really worked back when there were only a few million webpages on the net and search engine bots, spiders and crawly things blindly sucked the meta tags right in and I used to get all kinds of outrageous emails from angry christians and conspiratorial whatnots. Yes folks I've been spoofing search engines like a damn fool since '96...
