Giant White Glove, 2008

The "White Glove Tracking project" is an open source project initiated by Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth. They created a platform on which users could manually mark the  location of Michael Jackson's glove in every frame of a video. In 72 hours, random people on the internet had worked together to locate the glove in all of the 10,060 frames.

After gathering this information, they published the results online and invited other artists to create visualisations based on the data. "Giant White Glove" is my contribution to this project. It was created in one single day as a break from a tedious commercial project.
