How long: 2 weeks
 
 
The Finalists are four entities, which reside exclusively in the Internet. The figures make themselves accessible to the user, through their personal homepage, which changes sequentially during the period of 10 days, from their original state to their self-destruction. Chat events and a message board invite interaction. The finale takes place as a simultaneous webstream.
