Can the literary arts be more than the creative output of a single individual?
Most people believe literature arises from the self-expression of individual artists, however there is potential for more innovative models of creative production. This talk will formulate new ways to conceive artistic production, based on principles of collaboration and shared knowledge. It will demonstrate how creative expression can happen between strangers. This opportunity for collective art is something technology can truly empower.
The technology developed in preparation for this talk allows us to conduct a live experiment with the attendees on collaboration with creative constraints. The results of the experiment will be viewed in real-time. The talk will also briefly delve into the technical details of the technology, although participants are not expected to have deep technical knowledge of real-time systems and cloud computing.
Let’s create art collaboratively!
