[video src=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Mmb5aSscck] Aaron Koblin’s The Sheep Market is a web-based artwork that uses the ‘Amazon Mechanical Turk’ system to get thousands of workers involved in the creation of a massive database of drawings. The artist’s inspiration for ‘The Sheep Market’ was to try to exploit human creativity, while at the same time shedding light on the insignificant role each worker plays as part of a whole. But Koblin was mostly curious how workers would respond to his absurd task: “When I saw the first sheep come through the system I knew I had made the right decision. As I had hoped each sheep truly reflected the individual and humanity behind it.”
