Since the beginning
Works in Brooklyn, New York United States of America


Artists M. River and T. Whid formed MTAA in 1996 and soon after began to explore the internet, video, software and sculpture as mediums for their conceptually-based art. The duo’s exhibition history includes group shows and screenings at The New Museum of Contemporary Art, Postmasters Gallery and Artists Space, all in New York City, and at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. In "New Media Art" (Taschen, 2006), authors Mark Tribe and Reena Jana describe MTAA’s "One Year Performance Video (aka samHsiehUpdate)" as “a deftly transparent demonstration of new media’s ability to manipulate our perceptions of time.” The collaboration has earned grants and awards from Creative Capital,, Eyebeam, New Radio & Performing Arts, Inc. and The Whitney Museum of American Art.

Six Degrees of Smoking


The Secret Lives of Lost Lighters

Have you ever wondered what happens to your cigarette lighter when you lend it to someone and don't get it back? Six Degrees of Smoking is a global artistic collaboration to delve into the secret lives of lost lighters. Lighters are handed out or posted to those who wish to be involved. The recipient then photographs themselves smoking a cigarette and submits it via MMS or email. He then passes the lighter on to a fellow smoker (either a friend or a stranger) and the process is repeated. Each lighter is numbered and so they can be tracked on their travels. [Remember Traces of Fire?]

You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About #mtaa

Sat Oct 02, 2010 00:00 - Wed Sep 29, 2010

United States of America


Two performances!
Watch it live on-line here!

Saturday at 2:45PM Eastern Time and Sunday at 3:45PM as part of Filament Festival.

Two performances!


We, like you, have often wished while listening to a lecture, panel, speech or newscast to stand up and tell the speaker, "You do not know what you are talking about!"

The artists sit behind a desk with two laptops and two microphones before them. Behind them a projection screen displays the text "#mtaa" and a timer.

They announce the title of the performance, "You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About," and explain that for the duration of the performance, they will read any, only and all text sent to Twitter with the hash tag "#mtaa."

The audience is invited to start twittering.

MTAA need your tweets!

Watch it live on-line here!

Artists MTAA are conducting an old-fashioned barn-raising using high-tech techniques. The general public group-decides design, architectural, structural and aesthetic choices using a commercially-available barn-making kit as the starting point.

The duo then conducts this 21st century barn-raising with volunteers — perhaps including you — on October 1, 2010 on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's campus. Will it be structure? A deconstructed sculpture? Some combination thereof? That's for the you to choose.
