Ten Thousand Cents, A Mechanical Turk Art

Ten Thousand Cents by Aaron Koblin and Takashi Kawashima uses Amazon's Mechanical Turk (previously on Neatorama), where thousands of individuals working in isolation from one another painted a tiny part of a bill without knowing what the overall project is all about.

Then the duo captured the painting process and put all 10,000 being drawn simultaneously into one video clip.

What I find fascinating is the method the different people employed to form the individual rectangles. Some people seemed to really waste a lot of time in getting to the picture.
