The sheep market
April 27, 2008
The sheep market is an online project featuring 10,000 sheep created by workers on Amazon´s Mechanical Turk. Each worker was paid 0,2 $ to draw a sheep facing left.
What a marvelous idea. And the created sheep are adorable, funny and occasionally really really strange. I´m kind of fatalistically interested in how the rejected sheep (662) looked like. I think it shows in a really wonderful way the individuality of people and how they look at the world – or at sheep.
I could spend hours there watching the individual sheep being drawn.
Oh, and you can buy your very own sheep right out of the herd too.
