Crowdsourced Art: Activating Creative Publics

Crowdsourced art is an increasingly popular practice where artists use the Internet as a participatory platform to directly engage the public in the co-creation of art. In view of its reliance on the artistic contribution of a large pool of geographically dispersed participants, this type of art raises important questions about notions of collective creativity, authorship, collaboration, and the shifting structure of artistic production in the digital environment. The long-standing notion of art as the individual expression of one person’s vision and artistic sensibility is questioned within the inclusive, participatory modus operandi of crowdsourced art. In addition to introducing a useful typology for online practices of crowdsourced creativity, my presentation will explore the aesthetic, cultural and technological implications of crowdsourced art, and discuss the different levels of public participation (passive, executory, and structural) that such projects enable.
