In 1999, Harvey was a member of the infamous net art collective, hell.com, where other participating artists would gather online. “Webcam Movies” reveal the artist in her workspace, perpetually online, at the height of net art’s emergence. It was via an early video chat in hell.com that Harvey met her long-time collaborator Michaël Samyn. The same year they founded Entropy8Zuper!, a web design and net art collaboration maintained from 1999-2006 that merged their respective web platforms—Harvey’s Entropy8 and Samyn’s Zuper.
