Clement Valla asked 500 Amazon’s Mechanical Turk users to trace a line. The first user started with a straight line, the next user had to trace the previous user’s trace. I guess it’s no surprise that the last trace doesn’t remind you about the initial straight line. The result is “A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals”. The cool thing about this is the fact that Clement only payed $0.02 for every trace, so it has only cost him $10.
You can still participate in Clement’s current project “Copy Images using a simple drawing tool“, you’ll get $0,04 per drawing.
Fold II by Riyo Nemeth, a Photoshop gradient effect printed and folded along the line.
One Hundred and Eight is an interactive installation made by Nils Völker. It’s made out of ordinary garbage bags which can be selectively inflated and deflated by two cooling fans.
Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around.
