DEDOME NISHI
ARTIST (PHOENIX SCRATCH COMMISSION #1)

DeDome Nishi is the Second Life avatar of Richard DeDomenici.

Richard is an artist based within the M25. He has described himself as:

'a one-man subversive think-tank primarily dedicated to the development and implementation of innovative strategies designed to undermine accepted belief systems and topple existing power structures. By approaching the limits of conventionally acceptable behaviour, Richard Dedomenici's poetic acts of low-grade civil disobedience forcibly ask pertinent questions of society, while his subtle anarcho-surrealist interventions create the kind of uncertainty that leads to possibility.'
