Mark Napier shredded the web with his 'Shredder 1.0.' Mark Tribe stripped it with 'Revelation 1.0.' Now redsmoke.com's Lew Baldwin wraps the web a la Christo with 'GoodWorld.' Commissioned by the Whitney's Artport, GoodWorld is a virtual browser that turns any site it visits into a (mostly) yellow abstract composition. All links are transformed into ascii smiley faces, and all images are grossly tweaked or simply 'wrapped' in yellow. GoodWorld transforms CNN.com into a Mondrian-esque Teletubby daydream. A political statement, or just good clean absurdity? - Curt Cloninger
