Joanna Briggs - "Haikoo!"
Click here to launch the site in a new window.

Statement:

Haikoo, a work by Joanna Briggs, parallels and challenges the structure of web-based information. Haikoo is an internet directory that mimics the structure and architecture of Yahoo! While Yahoo uses 25 words to describe web sites, Haikoo uses seventeen syllables and the format of haiku poetry to describe sites. Similar to Yahoo, users submit links with descriptions that are approved by an adminstrator before publication on the site.
