Adam Herst is
a Toronto-based artist and arts manager, Linux system administrator,
and technical writer.
He is interested in the tension between ideas, their ownership, and their
reproduction, and in exploring the proposition that ideas which are designed
for dissemination will be disseminated. When Adam isn't creating art,
arts organizations and other non-profits
make the most of their investments in technology.
