For Art's Birthday on January 17th 2004, the Western Front has invited artists to join in a simultaneous birthday bash.

From January 16th through to the 18th participating artists are using sensors, software, and robotics to join in the creation of activated social spaces that respond to data flow from one site to another.

During the ride, Art will be interviewed and give an artist statement in the limo's cabin until she'll successfully is delivered to Western Front where the B-day cake will be devoured.
