Social Media Art Inc. and the Folding Hands project

I'm a founding member of the non-profit organization Social Media Art, Inc. The organization was put together to explore ideas in massively collaborative art.

The first project being undertaken by our organization is what we call the Folding Hands project. It is what we call the "global quilting bee" in which tens of thousands of contributors worldwide can help to make an origami tapestry.

The creative process in art is something that is very difficult to make collaborative. This project is helping us to discover the difficulties and to try to find solutions that balance top-down and bottom-up control in creativity.
