My plan was to spend a few hours editing inappropriate information and opinions into unlocked or unprotected Wikipedia articles. Below are screen shots of articles I edited successfully.

(Feel free to click on the image in order to see the larger version)

After I accomplished the five images you see above I received the following message from our friends at Wikipedia.

I did choose to stop editing articles (for now). I'll be doing another project soon since this idea was so swiftly put to an end.

Questions for the 22nd

1. What are your thoughts on the limit that has thus forth been placed on the viewers interaction with a piece? That is to say, what do you think that art must some how invite or approve of audience participation before one is even "allowed" to touch or feel art? (This question is a bit of a jump off of the Relational Aesthetics reading. Not a direct connection, but a recent question I've had in my head. The reading reestablished the idea in my interest when Bourriaud was discussing the viewer.)

2. What is really left in our everyday live that does not require some type of skill, pre-taught or known through instinct? Have we forced even the simplest things to have to require some type of knowledge?

3. After reading "Clearing the Ground", do you feel that you need to redefine your description of an artist?

Questions from the reading

1. What was your definition avanta-garde prior to reading the wikipedia entry?

2. How do you see cities become more integrated to our "virtual world" in the future? Do you think the "virtual world" will replace the cities and landscapes and become the new medium to shape and pave as we grow and expand? Has it already?

3. At what point do you feel you understand another human being? Is it simply shadowing them? Is talking required? How soon would you feel someone knew you? Can this relate to art and public art?
