Nokia's Global Art

Nokia has invited the world to take part in a collaborative animation competition with 1000s of people worldwide.

The mechanics of the competition is pretty straight forward, but the results (so far) are quite amazing. How it works is as follows:

1. 1000s of people hold blank frames
2. Universal Everything draws cell animation onto each frame
3. We all become part of an animation which crosses the globe
4. The process then continues with public submissions, creating an infinite global animation

The contributor with the most images also stands in line to win a new Nokia N95 8Gb

The project will be an ever-growing social piece of video art, shown on the video walls in selected Nokia Stores and related public displays. Below is a clip on the art collected so far:
