[meme.garden] is collaboratively created software which allows participants to search words, find clouds of associated words, and “plant” their word searches to create “forests” which may or may not have relationships with other participants in the system. Participants’ plants grow through time and reflect network changes through time about their interests. The [meme.garden] software was commissioned by Turbulence.org and created by Mary Flanagan, Daniel Howe, Chris Egert, Junming Mei, & Kay Chang.
[meme.garden] launched on Turbulence.org in 2006 as part of the net.art commission series
[meme.garden] was nominated for Prix Ars Electronica Award, Digital Communities 2007
