I love the idea. Does someone speak German? I can't read what is saying.

with a lot of effort, I managed to bring the crowd into drawing this ...

, but then they simply destroyed what they had helped build moments before... the curious thing was that they would use pixels to write random stuff, but instead of dragging them from large areas with a lot of them like the hat where their loss wouldn't be much noted, they went precisely for those sensitive spots (eyes, mouth...) that gave the drawing expressivity... as if they were motivated by destruction itself.

This is a nice way to do a psychology experiment.

[put at-character here]Waldir: I don't think this is motivated by destruction. It's just where people's eyes are naturally drawn to.

A couple of years ago, Philipp posted some pictures on this site and asked us to click "anywhere". The clicks were always concentrated around the "sensitive" spots.

Something similar in this regard: – also a collaborative art project – with another approach.

2ce now I have spent 10-20 minutes working on something only to have someone come in and rip it to shreds as I am still working on it... the destructive portions are far more powerful than the creative ones.
