I recently used the Wikipedia Art site in a lecture for architecture
students. I was trying to suggest how emergent systems can have both social
and technical foundations and the manner in which architecture can be
considered a related phenomenon (I used the Megafone project about Saharawi
refugee camps as the architectural example).

Wikipedia Art is a great project, so good luck with it.

Best

Simon

> Dear members of the CRUMB List:
> 
> Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern here, the progenitors of Wikipedia Art
> <http://wikipediaart.org>. The original piece served as both an art work that
> anyone can edit, and a social intervention into the power structures at
> Wikipedia (and social media at large).
> 
> We're writing to ask for your help with, and participation in, a curatorial
> project involving our work.
> 
> Wikipedia Art was recently nominated as a finalist for the Transmediale Award
> <http://www.transmediale.de/en/node/16296>, and we've been invited to
> "present, share, discuss or in some form show, demo etc.." the work as part of
> the festival in Berlin next February.
> 
> Given that WIkipedia Art is constituted of text and online relationships, it's
> hard to find the best way to give it form. In the past, we've had a call for
> "re-mixes" of Wikipedia Art exhibited online as part of the Venice Biennale
> <http://wikipediaart.org/remixes/>, and hired actors to perform a scripted
> re-mix/mash-up of the Wikipedia Art deletion debate with Who's Afraid of
> Virginia Woolf?, at a gallery in New York.
> 
> For Transmediale, we've proposed another community-based collaboration.
> Specifically, we said we'd ask the members of the CRUMB list-serv for
> recommendations on how to "exhibit" our work. We are asking for your expertise
> and ideas. The installation and exhibition will be decided as a collaboration
> between you, us, and the Transmediale folks: Syelle Hase <[log in to unmask]>
> and Stephen Kovats <[log in to unmask]>. We'll be keeping records of this
> discussion as well, in case it is to become part of the work. There are some
> space and other resource limitations, as always, but we're very open to
> anything feasible within that scope. Consensus on the best way forward is not
> necessary, and any and all ideas and viewpoints are welcome. We hope you want
> to be involved, and to come up with some fantastic ways of presenting our
> work.
> 
> Thank you in advance for your help.
> 
> Sincerely,
