Eva and Franco Mattes, internationally known as 0100101110101101.ORG, are a couple of restless European con-artists who use non-conventional communication tactics to obtain the largest visibility with the minimal effort. Past works include staging a hoax involving a completely made-up artist, ripping off the Holy See and spreading a computer virus as a work of art.
