The exquisite forest

This is an online collaborative project from Aaron Koblin and Chris Milk. Produced by Tate and Google, and about to be installed at Tate Modern, it allows people to create their own animations.

The drawings created by individuals are automatically combined to form trees with each other, and harnesses Google Chrome’s HTML5, Java Script, Google App Engine and Google Cloud Storage.

The Exquisite Forest is a lovely way to get people involved in animation, as well as championing crowd-sourced and collaborative projects.
