Aaron Koblin, The Sheep Market is a collection of 10,000 sheep made by workers on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Workers were paid 0.02 ($USD) to “draw a sheep facing to the left.” Animations of each sheep’s creation may be viewed at TheSheepMarket.com
Art-Tech weekend here I come! Rhizome’s Seven on Seven takes place this weekend, which means ticket holders get to see what seven artists and their heavy hitting tech collaborators come up with. As expressed in earlier AFC comment threads, given the one-day time limitation, there’s a good chance the projects won’t yield particularly awesome results. Still, with fourteen participants I’m guessing at least one piece will make the event worth while. Whatever the results, you’ll be hearing from me. After the fact. The New Museum’s theater is in the basement so live tweeting the event isn’t going to happen.
