"shoac" is an anagram of the word "chaos":
shoac was born in 1997 on the internet and has developped into shoac.com since that time.
shoac can be anything: a picture, a website, words, sounds, life, sex...
a main task of shoac.com is the transformation of shoac via a simple java-based drawing program+a text field.
Every user can transform shoac´s present existence by sending their imagination of shoac.
The results of those "interactive" pictures and texts transform the main part of shoac´s virtual identity on the net.
