Ze Frank Performance Artist
Composer, Humorist and Public Speaker

Since 2001 Ze has created online and offline environments in which participants can gather, create, and play. His site, zefrank.com includes a wide range of projects that have focused on collaboratively written and illustrated poetry, algorithm-assisted citizen artwork, photo contests, digital toys, and a year-long week-daily video blog entitled “The Show”. The format of The Show was derived through an ongoing conversation with its viewers and resulted in a month long game of Wiki-facilitated chess, the creation of an Earth Sandwich, Fabuloso Friday – an episode written entirely by the audience, as well as thousands of audience-created pictures, songs and video clips. Currently Ze is organizing an internet-wide game called Colorwars 2008. Ze has held adjunct positions at NYU/ITP, Parsons and SUNY Purchase and frequently performs as an Information Age consultant, storyteller and humorist.
