Artist Spotlight: Aaron Koblin – innovative online projects

From the superb and inspirational site The Creators Project:

“His artwork takes data and digital technologies and creates experiences that are completely unexpected and personal, while also tapping into the sociality of art. His early experimentations in crowdsourced art are inventive and inspiring, using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk as a platform for harnessing the art hive mind of the web. This enabled people to tap into their creativity in an unfamiliar way while also allowing Koblin to experience the creative processes of others.

Whether he’s asking strangers to draw sheep or turning Radiohead into 3D scanned particles, his work explores how software can be transformed into stories.”
