New York, NY, United States

Rhizome champions internet art and culture through commissions, exhibition, and a unique digital preservation research and software development program, online at rhizome.org and in partnership with its longtime affiliate and host, the New Museum in New York City. Founded in 1996 as an intimate email list connecting some of the first artists to work on the web and now—more than twenty years later—a thriving nonprofit with robust, multi-tiered programming, Rhizome has played an integral role in the history, definition, and growth of art engaged with the internet.

Since 2014, Rhizome’s small software development team has created Webrecorder, a tool to easily capture and immediately reconstruct complex web pages; Oldweb.today, which pairs emulated legacy browsers to a variety of public web archives; and, in collaboration with the University of Freiburg in Germany, Emulation as a Service, an emulation framework which delivers complete, fully interactive legacy software environments to users via in-browser iFrames.
