Collaborative Instigators

It's a zany world of remixers, creators and curators. The Sketchbook Project is an interesting example of how two people travel across the globe in a Honda Civic to link and connect artists through a collage of intimate moleskin sketches. What started out as a call to action - for artists to send in their sketchbooks - turned into a quest to gather the work of almost 3,000 participants on the theme "Everyone we know".

The method resembles the way we interact on the Internet -- unconnected people brought together to ruminate on the same idea - when that happens, communities form, ideas are shared and things happen.
