More collaboration

Bar Karma

– a tv series co-created by an online community:

“The first online community-developed network television series. Online users pitch their own ideas for scenes and twists online, using a tool designed by Will Wright called the Storymaker. Some are eventually chosen by the production staff, and are utilized to help create a new episode every week.”
From wikipedia.

People collaborate on stories in with the so-called StoryMaker tool. It seems pretty cool!
“StoryMaker was developed by Will Wright, creator of the Sims. StoryMaker empowers our online community to collaboratively tell stories — stories that will ultimately be used in creating the television show, Bar Karma.”

Collaborative Arts Network

“ a creative agency and collaboration ready network where freelancers can exchange knowledge and develop the projects they love.”


Why do you do what you do?

A collaborate art project. “A role call for the human race”… “As a Collaborating Artist, you’ll be perpetuating the social-media meme. You can have your own gallery on that features a particular community attributed with your byline”.
Have exhibited images at Burning Man among other places…


Snail mail my email

A collaborative art project that ran for a month in 2011. People were encouraged to send in an email that was then handwritten by a volunteer and then sent to the desired recipient. More than 10.000 letters were sent 


The Zoomquilt – A collaborative art project

“An endless zoom animation. Click and drag the image to move. The Zoomquilt was completed in 2004. It emerged from the internet platform, a site where people collaborated on patchwork paintings in earlier days of the internet. Notably drawing inspiration from Gridcosm, a similar and ongoing project, the Zoomquilt aimed to create a more seamless and immersive experience. It soon became an internet notorious, won a FWA site of the month and was featured on MTV.”
