Launch: Projects by PreNeo Press is an exhibition which explores the intersections between idea and product, art and design, critique and entertainment. The works in this exhibition straddle aspects of contemporary cultural production yet place themselves firmly in the conceptual lane of today's fine art arena.

PreNeo's audience-based, interactive and socially reflective artworks employ elements of business commerce including information technologies, marketing strategies, branding, product packaging and surveys. PreNeo projects comment on aspects of contemporary American culture, the media, and modes and means of human communication. The works employ humor, irony and are intended to provide the audience with a provocative and entertaining experience.

Feature works include: Belief Manifesto, The Daily Planet Interactive, ebaybies, Jargon Reducer, Meaning Maker, and Storyland.
