16 Objects, Ready or Not by artist Michael Craig-Martin was commissioned and co-produced by The Museum of Modern Art. It was created in conjunction with the ModernStarts: Things exhibition on view from November 21, 1999 to March 14, 2000. The online artist project may also be viewed locally as a screensaver.

Born in Dublin in 1941, Michael Craig-Martin studied at Yale University School of Art and Architecture in the early 1960s, but has spent most of his working life in Great Britain. His first one-person exhibition was in 1969 at the Rowan Gallery, London and he has since shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Britain and internationally, including the definitive exhibition of British conceptual art, The New Art, at the Hayward Gallery (1972). From 1974 to 1988, he taught at Goldsmiths College, London, where he returned in 1993 as Millard Professor of Fine Art. In 1989 a major retrospective of his work was held at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London. He has done installations for the Projects exhibition series at The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1991) and at the Centre Pompidou in Paris (1994). In 1995 he curated Drawing the Line, an exhibition of drawings from pre-history to the present day held at the Whitechapel Art Gallery (and touring). His work was included in the 1996 exhibition Un siècle de sculpture anglaise at the Jeu de Paume in Paris. Michael Craig-Martin has had five solo shows at Waddington Galleries in London. Most recently he has created major wallpainting installations at the Kunstverein Hannover (1998) and at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart (1999). In 1998 he represented Great Britain at the XXIV Bienal de São Paulo in Brazil. He was appointed a Trustee of the Tate Gallery, London, from 1989 to 1999.
