Hello all,

AltarBoy, my sculpture-server has been bought by Analix Forever Gallery.
So finally a NetArt work has been sold as any other art object.
Well, does this story open a new market? Will see, to early to say, but for sure, no excuses anymore.
Altarboy is in permanence at the Forever Laser Institute in Geneva, Switzerland..
Do you want to see it? Go there and ask for a beauty treatment !

Here is a link where it can be reached (in the next future) online:

A dedicated dsl line is going to be set.. so don't worry if you find the server down for a while.
