"Metaorigines" is an art project on the web : an exchange/communication between the viewer and the artist. Reynald Drouhin conceived and organised this initiative which invited site visitors to respond to a photographic image posted on the project's web page. These responses ranged from written comments related to the sexual nature of the photograph, to visitors' own artistic interpretations of the work's content. The artist also participated in this process. The call for submissions closed in September of 1999. Site visitors can now review the project's archive of text, image, video and sound elements.
