A Show

Three times a week, Internet pioneer Ze Frank humorously deals the world while creating wonderful collaborative artworks with his Internet audience.

Since his breakthrough in 2001, Internet pioneer and online performance artist Ze Frank created a massive amount of projects, in which the participation of his audience often took center stage. One of his most successful and influential projects was The Show. Between March 2006 and March 2007, Frank published a new episode every weekday. In April of 2012, after a successful crowdfunding campaign, Frank launched the highly anticipated follow-up A Show. In Frank’s own words, A Show is “same same but different.” Three times a week, he reflects on the world around him in short, tightly edited videos. Seated in front of the same open cupboard filled with books and paraphernalia, Frank discusses such divergent subjects as the teen brain, tongues, digital romance and a review of the recent presidential debates. Frank races through his and our world at hyper speed and full of humor. Yes, our world as well, because once again audience participation is key. Every show opens with real questions and stories from the audience, answered by Frank and often followed by intimate and funny collaborative challenges. With A Show, Frank has created one of the most unpredictable and human places on the web, which has produced wonderful collaborative artworks, such as animations of viewer-submitted dreams and fears and a song and accompanying music video on which 2,601 people collaborated.
