Can Creativity Be Crowdsourced?

he Internet both attracts and repels art institutions. Curators wonder who could possibly ensure quality control in a world where 50,000 videos are added to YouTube each day. Fortunately, artists themselves were crowdsourcing long before the Internet: composer John Cage laid out the principles fourteen years before Richard Stallman founded the Gnu project and twenty-nine years before the term "open source" was coined. Following the example of Cage, Jon Ippolito & John Bell are working to develop ways for artists to open source not only their art but their artistic process.
