Program Blows Up in Artist's Face

OFF THE TICKER

January 27, 1996|Associated Press

A computer artist in northern New York who thinks it's a blast to make celebrities' heads "explode" got a little visit from the Secret Service. Daniel Burford, 22, selects photographs of celebrities he dislikes and blows them up on his World Wide Web page in comic-book fashion.

Not everyone gets the joke.

Two Secret Service agents showed up at Burford's workplace, Virtual Visions Inc.

"They asked me . . . if I'd ever been in a mental hospital," Burford said. "I guess they decided I wasn't a security threat."
