Crossfeed.org

netart, 2008

Crossfeed.org was an interactive web based project by artists Meg Mitchell and Wendy Babcox. This work examined the vast space between a search for information and the available data from contemporary news sources on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The conflict represents an almost archetypal struggle of our time and yet it remains a confusing issue for many.

Upon entering the site you were invited to ask a question of the feedpool about the conflict. The question was added to the pool from which questions were randomly selected and juxtaposed with available news headlines. Crossfeed.org was an object (site) of contemplation.
