Artistic experiments with Wikipedia content

Published September 13, 2010

We are gathering here some links documenting an interesting phenomenon: artist-publishers experimenting with freely licenced Wikipedia text material and web-to-print bookmaking…

We noticed some time ago the “Wikipedia Reader” published by ASDF— (Mylinh Trieu Nguyen and David Horvitz), in which a selection of 12 artists “were asked to conduct a Wikipedia search, and then to continue onto other articles through linked words, creating a «string» of ideas”. Two editions have been produced (2008 and 2009).

Another project is “This Disambiguation Page“, a 40-page booklet created by normal number (aka graphic designer Joel Stillman), that traces the Wikipedia phenomenon of “Disambiguation Pages.”
