ABOUT US


HorizonZero: a unique online space for digital art, ideas, and culture.

The HorizonZero project was a creative collaboration between The Banff New Media Institute (BNMI) and the Culture.ca Gateway. Begun in early 2002, the project concluded its live production cycle in December 2004. As an interactive Web production, HorizonZero developed eighteen thematic issues in total, launching monthly updates on a regular basis between August 2002 and December 2004. Dual Web sites (a high-broadband, media-rich Flash site and an accessible, text-based site) were published in Canada's two official languages, French and English.

Throughout its three-year lifespan, the HorizonZero project dedicated itself to opening the developing field of new media to the larger realm of Canadian culture, by building new audiences, engaging cultural and ethnic diversity, and fostering dialogues between new media practitioners and their audiences. The objective: to commission fresh Canadian new media content; to promote and disseminate Canadian talent in digital arts and culture, both nationally and worldwide; and to facilitate dialogue and innovation in the converging fields of science, technology, media arts, and research. Combining a strong Canadian focus, a critical perspective, and a sense of humour, the project regularly published digital art and interactives, essays, fiction and poetry, interviews and reviews, photography, video, animation, and other original work. Issue themes evolved from the wide spectrum of Canadian activity in digital art and culture, and focused upon the presentation, interpretation, analysis, and oeuvre of individual artists, artistic movements, and related events and discourses.
