Andrea Grover is curating Phantom Captain: Art and Crowdsourcing at Apexart in New York. The exhibition runs from October 18 – November 25 2006 and features contributions from Aaron Koblin of The Sheep Market, Jeff Howe of Crowdsourcing.com and Davy Rothbart of Found magazine.
She also refers to an article where Clive Thompson refers to “art mobs” rather than “smart mobs” and comments that “mobs can’t draw”. She then points to a more recent experiment at SwarmSketch which is having more success and is this week attempting to draw a lunar eclipse, one line at a time.
The exhibition promises to be a fascinating look at this relatively new concept of crowdsourcing.
