 +<blockquote>**Zizim** was an experimental platform borrowing from [[:grazing_hermits|Boskoi]], consisting of a website and mobile app for geotagging plants and ecologically significant locations. Under continuous testing and development throughout [[http://borrowed-scenery.net/|Borrowed Scenery]], it represented the locative dimension of the cross-pollination between physical and virtual, pointing both to useful practical information on the urban geography of plants and gardens, while also accommodating more fanciful representations, such as ambiguous "pataplants" and "pataportals" – physically significant places that interfaced with the [[Aniziz]] game to transport players to other locations.</blockquote>
 +Zizim was a field guide to remarkable plants and gardens. A valuable tool for a patabotanical field worker, it allowed you to assemble and explore a growing collection of urban plants amenable to living with humans and gardens where people cultivate, contemplate, exchange and eat plants. You could report your findings and affix fieldnotes using the website or mobile app for Android-based tracking devices.
