This is documentation of intervention into Wikipedia with my collaborator, Nathaniel Stern.
Project link is: wikipediaart.org
The project received over 40 original press articles. We were also threatened with litigation from the Wikimedia Foundation. The project was nominated for a Transmediale Award in 2011 (Berlin).
Wikipedia Art is originally intended to be art composed on Wikipedia, and thus art that anyone can edit. Since the work itself manifested as a conventional Wikipedia page, would-be art editors were required to follow Wikipedia’s enforced standards of quality and verifiability.
We call this project one that takes advantage of "performative citations," creating a feedback loop of Wikipedia's citation mechanism.
