Matthew Britton and Art Squad launch an ongoing artwork set in Google Docs, where it can be edited collaboratively by anyone invited to process.
The idea started with a piece Britton created earlier this year called PaintByUser.co which inspired the creation of a virtual environment “in which participants can have an ephemeral exchange of ideas and expressions” intended to make them consider how they are using the web page as well as the tools at their disposal.
The Art Squad Google Doc can be shared with anyone, and can be added to, edited, or deleted by anyone, thereby creating a kind of egalitarian community interaction within a single document.
See the Google Doc to view the collaborative art work and follow its progress. **
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
