picturing the net artist's studio 2

From the previous post:

Most attempts by net artists to break the fourth wall and reveal their studio environment are as banal as those environments: webcam feeds, grinning avatars, etc.

Have always disliked this kind of arty cropping. It's especially obnoxious in ads for politicians. Eliot Spitzer and Geraldine Ferraro both hired some art director genius to do this for them--or am I thinking of an old Pepsi ad with Ferraro? But that's another rant.
