A new blog challenges the visual sterility of Wikipedia and the nature of online visual art collaboration

Stephen Fortune
  • 13 january 2011

Wikipedia Illustrated is a blog which invites collaborators to illustrate 26 Wikipedia Articles, with the eventual alphabetical outcome published in a Creative Commons licensed book. The project poses many interesting questions, including whether visual work is inherently less collaborative than text and querying why the visual aspect of Wikipedia has been so bland to date.

Wikipedia Illustrated will launch with a series of workshops at the Transmediale 2011 media art festival. The workshops aim to develop a methodology for contributing creative-commons licensed illustrations to Wikipedia.
