Locative Painting is a locative web/mobile artwork that forms a painting on the screen where the strokes are giving by the participants according to their geographical position (zip code). The participant chooses the stroke color and his/her stroke is given from the previous participant's position to his/her location on the screen. After participating, the person receives the painting with his/her stroke by email and SMS (on the cell phone). Each person has his/her moment in the painting and the strokes connecting people creates the painting community exchanging and crossing paths.

MISSION ETERNITY is a METAPHYSICAL adventure: an arcane network of computers, mortal remains, human emotions, cargo containers, scientists, artists, lawyers and hackers - a technical, as well as an organizational and economic nightmare.
MISSION ETERNITY is hybrid art. There is no classic category for such an operation: the venture is far too hubristic, too complex to explain, involving too many specialist disciplines and too many people to fit into one single box - or a website. This documentation is just the tip of the iceberg. Goto MISSION ETERNITY
Man With a Movie Camera: The Global Remake is a participatory video shot by people around the world who are invited to record images interpreting the original script of Vertov’s Man With A Movie Camera and upload them to this site. Software developed specifically for this project archives, sequences and streams the submissions as a film. Anyone can upload footage. When the work streams your contribution becomes part of a worldwide montage, in Vertov’s terms the “decoding of life as it is”.
Everyday a new version of the movie is built. On the left is Vertov’s original. On the right is a shot uploaded from a participant. The uploaded shots are rotated each day if there is more than one. So the built movie may never be quite the same. Black shots are still waiting for an upload; perhaps you can fill it in?
Gridcosm is a collaborative art project in which artists from around the world contribute images to a compounding series of graphical squares. Each level of Gridcosm is made up of nine square images arranged into a 3x3 grid. The middle image is a one-third size version of the previous level. Artists add images around that center image until a new 3x3 grid is completed, then that level itself shrinks and becomes the "seed" for the next level. This process creates an ever expanding tunnel of images, the newest level a direct result of the previous level which is a result of the previous level... and so on.
This project was created in 1997 by Ed Stastny and has subsequently been under more-or-less constant refinement by Ed and Jon Van Oast. Gridcosm is microblogging
