code zebra

project description:

Code Zebra is a digital project aiming to create a dialogue between the worlds of art and science. At its core is a Web chat environment which maps and creates conversations. But Code Zebra is not the average chat-room. Borrowing an interface from the biological world, users can generate visual conversation histories, play games with each other and generate their own patterns which hark back to the animal kingdom. The metaphor of patterns is important to Code Zebra: they show relationships between postings, links between topics and the emotional qualities of any conversation.

Beyond the Website (www.codezebra.net), the project has many further elements, notably performances and installations, research and “softwear” fabrics which take animal patterns as their cue. Led by Sara Diamond, artistic director, Media Visual Arts, The Banff Centre, the Code Zebra team spans the globe: the artists, designers, academics and software engineers working on it are based in Canada, the USA, The Netherlands and the UK.
