Wikipedia | 10th Anniversary

Wikipedia's 10th Anniversary from Dean McNamee on Vimeo.

Installation for Wikipedia's official 10th anniversary party. Held at the Louise T Blouin Foundation in West London, the attendance included Jimmy Wales, Richard Dawkins, Peter Gabriel, and Cory Doctorow.

The installation leveraged the space to express the continuous volume of Wikipedia's activity, as users around the world created and contributed to articles. A series of 18 printers suspended over the entrance lobby printed a physical record of individual contributions, along with an excerpt summarizing the article edited. This highlighted the devoted community, along with sharing a piece of Wikipedia's collective knowledge.

Created by Dean McNamee and Tim Burrell-Saward.
