[nettime] Wikipedia Art Entry Deleted

Edward Shanken wrote: Following an extensive debate, the Wikipedia Art entry was deleted at 6:32am UTC 15 February, 2009. The Wikipedia gatekeepers referred to it as a “non-notable, self-referential mess” … that “does not exist in any way that merits an article.” As the work’s creators note, “The work still resides at its own domain, and has passed into its second (historical/evidentiary) phase.” (link below)

My subsequent art historical intervention – adding Wikipedia Art to the Conceptual Art entry in Wikipedia – was also deleted. This entry, the last in a long line of examples of conceptual art (written in the present tense), noted that the Wikipedia Art entry (deleted) generates over seven thousand words of debate on whether or not the article should be kept or deleted, ineluctibly instantiating the existence of Wikipedia Art as a viable artwork, the identity of which consists of its evolving Wikipedia definition, including the debate surrounding it.”

The deletion of my addition to Wikipedia is mysterious but not unjustified in the world of Wikipedia, for despite my academic credentials, my assertion of the authenticity of Wikipedia Art as art cannot be verified by what the editors recognize as a “reliable” source (namely peer-review publications). I would like to see Wikipedia Art instantiated in the context for which is conceived; indeed, by the very nature of its conception Wikipedia Art can exist and evolve only in the context of Wikipedia. At the same time, I recognize that the very nature of its conception is antithetical to the nature of Wikipedia. I embrace this dynamic, theatrical struggle of opposing forces and look forward to the ongoing debate and process of historicization…

From the Wikipedia Art website:

A collaborative project initiated by Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern, Wikipedia Art is art composed on Wikipedia, and thus art that anyone can edit. Since the work itself manifests as a conventional Wikipedia page, would-be art editors are required to follow Wikipedia’s enforced standards of quality and verifiability; any changes to the art must be published on, and cited from, ‘credible’ external sources: interviews, blogs, or articles in ‘trustworthy’ media institutions, which birth and then slowly transform what the work is and does and means simply through their writing and talking about it. Wikipedia Art may start as an intervention, turn into an object, die and be resurrected, etc, through a creative pattern / feedback loop of publish-cite-transform that we call “performative citations.” Wikipedia Art MUST BE written about extensively both on- and off-line. This serves the dual purpose of verifying the work – which is considered controversial by those in the Wikipedia community, and occasionally removed from the site – as well as transforming it over time. WE INVITE YOU TO DO SO!

[edit] Wikipedia Art

Wikipedia Art (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs) (delete) ? (View log)

This is an attempt to use Wikipedia as an “art platform”. It is not encyclopaedic. It can never be encyclopaedic by its very nature. It can’t be referenced to anything other than itself because it is an original work based on Wikipedia. These guys need to get themselves their own Wiki and host this there. It also seems to be part of a walled garden of suspicious articles about the artists themselves (Scott Kildall, Nathaniel Stern, and Brian Sherwin). It seems that they have accounts and edit these themselves. They may, or may not, be significantly notable outside of their own circle and may, or may not, have inflated their importance in their articles. I think it needs looking at.

* Comment Whether these people do simple edits on their own pages in no way invalidates what they have said here. If something is true then it should stay in the article regardless. Did you know this article is already referenced at The Whole 9 http://thewhole9.com/blogs/applestooranges/ just today.

Artintegrated (talk) 22:31, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* First up, the fact that the people write their own articles is a big problem because they lack objectivity. Secondly, you can’t have a circular chain of references. You can’t reference Wikipedia from a non-RS blog that itself references Wikipedia. By that logic, any information replicated on two different websites and referencing eachother would be gospel truth. Referencing does not work like that. –DanielRigal (talk) 21:17, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Comment I’m for giving this article time to improve. It’s an interesting concept, though it needs better sourcing. –TS 21:25, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
* Comment:”the fact that the people write their own articles is a big problem because they lack objectivity” It seems to me that everyone writes their own articles on Wikipedia and there is no such thing as objectivity in Wikipedia. That is the whole point– it is inherently subjective.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 01:48, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Please read the article carefully and see that it can’t possibly improve to become a valid Wikipedia article. It is an article about itself.
It is intrinsically unencyclopaedic. I don’t think it was necessarily created in bad faith but it is an abuse of Wikipedia to seek to use it as an art platform and it undermines Wikipedia as an encyclopaedia. –DanielRigal
(talk) 21:37, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete. Only fractionally better than any MADEUP topic. Created very recently. Also a totally confused concept – a collaborative art project – fine. But trying to do it on one Wikipedia page – you must be joking mate!
We also have an avoid self-reference rule. ? RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 21:40, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* This sort of artwork already has strong precedents in history – the Surrealists’ Exquisite Corpse, Debord’s idea of Situationist detournement, and although I am not part of this collective, I fully intend to include it as part of my chapter for the upcoming book of distributed writing commissioned by Turbulence.org, and it will be mentioned as part of my talk on new art practices at a guest lecture at Denver University on 2/16/09, and I have already written on it on my critical blog in London.
Therefore, the reference is to the emergence of the concept, which now exists outside Wikipedia, and is paradoxical but not solipsistic. I think that the person suggesting the idea of letting the idea grow is well-reasoned, and a time for review (say, 90 days) could be set for
re-evaluation.–24.14.54.88 (talk) 22:17, 14 February 2009 (UTC)–TS

* Comment: Please note that, transgressive though they were, the Surrealists played “exquisite corpses” using their own notepaper. They did not try to scrawl it the margins of a library book. This is the problem.
Nobody objects to a Wiki based artwork. The problem is that it can’t be inserted into Wikipedia because Wikipedia is not just a Wiki. It is an encyclopedia. It is no more appropriate to add non-encyclopaedic content here than it is to write stuff in library books. I have refrained from using the term “vandalism” because I think this is all a big misunderstanding rather than a deliberate attempt to damage Wikipedia. None the less, that is the effect it is having. –DanielRigal (talk) 22:24, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
* Comment: I would very much beg to differ on the point of the Surrealists. Dali would lay in traffic, Artaud organized a riot aginst Dulac’s first screening of the Clergyman and the Seashell. If the Surrealists would have found it “appropriate” for the message, I am absolutely sure they would have done Corpses in the library. The way I see it, if it gets pulled, it will become by definition a case for reinsertion as an “event” in New Media art history. However, I know the project is being watched by a number of curators with great interest.–Patlichty (talk) 23:36, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete – an interesting concept, but not suitable here: this is an encyclopedia, not a web-host for this sort of project. Find some other Wiki to do it on. JohnCD (talk) 21:58, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
* Delete. Out of scope as a project, completely lacking in evident notability as a concept. Powers T 22:09, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Addition to the nomination: OK. Now I am really confused. They have a Wiki of their own at: wikipediaart.org, which has the same content as the Wikipedia article we are discussing here. I am not sure how the two are meant to relate to eachother but it may be that they are confused as to the difference between a Wiki and Wikipedia. I am not sure which site they are proposing to be the actual art work. If it is the Wikipedia article then all I have said above is correct. If it is their own Wiki then the circularity is broken and the article in not intrinsically unencyclopaedic. In that case I would like to add the following alternative reasons to delete the article:
Lack of notability and lack of RS references. –DanielRigal (talk) 22:19, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Comment: the page at wikipediaart.org is not a wiki – it’s just an advert or pointer to this one. It’s clear that it’s here they intend the “art” to happen. JohnCD (talk) 22:33, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Correction: Sorry. I got their link wrong. They do have a Wiki
at: http://wikipediaart.org/wiki/. That said, I think you are almost certainly right. I just wanted to be fair to them and to everybody here by giving the whole picture. –DanielRigal (talk) 22:38, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete This could never be properly sourced, as it could only exist here first before it could ever be written about in order for it to be notable enough to be mentioned here. Yes, an interesting paradox, but that’s not our problem. We can only go by Wikipedia policies and guidelines, and it’s pretty clear that this needs to be deleted. But here’s an idea: the fact that this was attempted and subsequently deleted could possibly generate enough third-party coverage to make the initial project notable enough to be included (at least as part of the artists’ articles). But until then, it cannot stay. It’s not encyclopedic as an entirely self-referential article. freshacconci talktalk 22:28, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete. This does not make any sense: it is an article about itself. I think the article is a breaching experiment. As a side note, that website, wikipediaart.org, is most likely infringing on the Wikimedia Foundation’s copyright on the name Wikipedia. ???Life of Riley (T?C) 22:40, 14 February

* So, if you are right, that means that they probably regard this AfD as the real artwork? Oh joy. I think you are right about the copyright/trademark on “Wikipedia” but I was assuming (hoping) that it was a legitimate misunderstanding between Wiki (which anybody can use) and Wikipedia. I really hope that this does not turn out to have been a bad faith exercise from the outset. –DanielRigal (talk) 22:50, 14 February 2009

* delete This does not fit Wikipedia. DanielRigal, I don’t understand why you flagged the Brian Sherwin bio over this unless you have a beef with him. Did you even read the bio or the prior deletion debates? I’ve cited his interviews to help improve visual art bios on wikipedia because consensus has been that he is notable twice. Should I stop? Should we flag every writer and art critic if we don’t agree with something they write about? I read the Sherwin article about this and it does not look like he was a part of it aside from posting about it after one of the two contacted him. The article clearly says that it is a project by Stern and Kildall. So why did you flag the Sherwin bio? Artblogs (talk) 22:56, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* ‘Comment: the flags on the authors of the Wikipedia Art article are unwarranted – Kildall is a gradute of the Art Institute of Chicago, and well exhibited, I am not familiar with Biran per se, and I wrote a term paper in part about Nathaniel’s work during my MFA studies on African Computer Art in the mid 2000’s.

That has nothing to do with this AfD. I have replied on your talk page.
–DanielRigal (talk) 23:13, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete “Wikipedia Art” fails WP:N and WP:V. So far I have heard no reason why an exception should be made for “Wikipedia Art”. Many articles on artists, art movements, and art styles are deleted due to failure to meet minimum requirements for WP:N and WP:V. I have not heard any reason articulated by any of the defenders of this newly created article as to why an exception should be made in this instance. Therefore I see no reason to make an exception for its failure to meet basic requirements for Wikipedia articles. In the absence of any reasons given for overriding Wikipedia basic policy, I see no reason not to delete “Wikipedia Art”. Bus stop (talk) 00:23, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Keep The Wikipedia Art page is something that explains art, explores art, and is art all at the same time. Deleting this page would be a statement that the exegesis of conceptual art and/or new media art has no place in Wikipedia, except on the tired, lifeless, and opaque conceptual art and new media art pages. Why shouldn’t a tiny corner of Wikipedia-brand collective epistemology be preserved for an instructive, self-referential, and ever-changing living example of what an art object can be in the 21st Century? Should this page be judged invalid only because it refers to itself? The Wikipedia Art page is a self-aware example of Wikipedia’s mission of collective epistemology. It enacts and exposes Wikipedia’s own strengths, weaknesses, potential, and limits as a system of understanding and as a contemplative object of beauty. The page is also a self-aware example of the strengths, weaknesses, potential, and limits of new media art as a an object of contemplation. New media art has demonstrated that the boundaries between art and every other discipline from epistemology to microbiology have disintegrated (see interdisciplinarity) in the 21st Century. This page shows how a Wikipedia page can go beyond simply existing as a Wikipedia page, while retaining its basic utilitarian Wikipedia function. Those who care most about Wikipedia’s mission would probably agree that Wikipedia already is a collaborative art form. If you feel that Wikipedia is a beautiful thing, then at some level (whether or not you admit
it) you consider Wikipedia an art form, with its own codes and conventions.
This artwork can only exist as a Wikipedia page that refers to itself.
Therefore, deleting would not only send the message “this is not Wikipedia”; it would also be saying “this is not art.” comment added by Shmeck (talk ?

(UTC)
# No, I haven’t addressed your points. The subject of the discussion is whether to delete the article or not, not whether or not you feel that Wikipedia should have an article containing the qualities that you feel the “Wikipedia Art” article might be capable of containing.
Ostensibly the points and the subject matter of your defense of the “Wikipedia Art” article is what would be discussed and debated in the article itself, if it existed. That might be an interesting discussion; then again that might not be an interesting discussion. But I don’t think we have to assume the article exists in order to discuss whether or not to delete it. I think we can separate those two discussions. Bus stop (talk) 00:44, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

o I beg to differ. My contribution was meant to raise awareness of the larger context in which a decision to delete or keep the article is taking place. Having read the comments above, I saw they did not reflect an understanding of what’s at stake in a decision to delete or keep the article. Either decision would say a great deal about both Wikipedia and whether/how it distinguishes between collaborative knowledge and collaborative art, at a time when that boundary is quickly evaporating (see MIT’s Artist-In-Residence program). Awareness of these matters is essential to the discussion.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 01:45, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
+ I disagree. The only thing at stake is Wikipedia’s integrity as an encyclopaedia. The rest is stuff that we simply take no view on. If something is deleted it is because it is inappropriate to Wikipedia. It is not a comment on its wider worth. Nothing will be lost if the article is deleted. The authors can request a copy to be emailed to them and they can put it up again on another site. This is not censorship. This is not against art. It is just housekeeping. –DanielRigal
(talk) 01:07, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
# Yes, but according to whose definition of Wikipedia’s “integrity as an encyclopedia”? Yours? Forgive me, but you don’t seem receptive to the range of opinions in this discussion arguing quite cogently for a more open definition. According to the Wikipedia entry, an encyclopedia is “a comprehensive written compendium that holds information.”Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 01:48, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Delete. Wikipedia is not a web host for collaborative art projects.
Previous discussions about sourcing are beside the point, because this is an art project, and art projects are not allowed in article space.
Baileypalblue (talk) 00:55, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Comment: What exactly distinguishes a collaborative art project from a collaborative article?
+ I think it should be obvious that an article is an attempt to objectively capture the facts about a subject and that art is a subjective attempt to say something original about something. Given that Wikipedia is for objectivity and against original research it really is an incredibility inappropriate place to seek to make art. I see the attraction of the Wiki engine for collaborative art, but they can (and indeed already
have) start their own Wiki for that. –DanielRigal (talk) 01:14, 15 February
2009 (UTC)
# With all due respect, both the hard sciences, the humanities, and journalism have fully rejected the idea of objectivity.
There is no such thing, and Wikipedia is a perfect example of a perfectly subjective (if collaborative) encyclopedia. Similarly, originality has been rejected by art. There is no such thing. It’s all just different forms of appropriation. So it seems to me that Wikipedia is a perfect place to expose the current state of affairs.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 05:09, 15 February
2009 (UTC)
* Do you have a source for the notion that originality has been rejected by art? Are there any countervailing views?
Bus stop (talk) 01:34, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Yes: Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichtenstein, Michelangelo, Leonardo daVinci. It’s all copying and pasting.
The only difference is that now artists are self-aware about it.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 05:09, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o I don’t think it is productive to discuss this. I now regret giving it an opening as it isn’t relevant here.
(This is what I get for trying to be helpful.) Some people reject the concept of encyclopaedic knowledge. That is their choice but I don’t see any reason for a person of that view to hang out on an encyclopaedia. This sort of stuff gets discussed interminably by philosophers. We are not going to get anywhere with it here. Lets let it drop. –DanielRigal (talk) 01:44, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Recap: I think we have an unusual situation here in two ways. First up there are a lot of people here who do not normally “do” AfDs. Secondly, there is a real, and I believe honest, failure of those who want to keep the article to understand the fundamental nature of the problem, or of Wikipedia itself. I don’t want to be patronising but lets quickly recap Wikipedia 101:
The five pillars of Wikipedia explains what Wikipedia is, isn’t and also how it is run. Almost everything of importance is linked from there but I would specifically like to mention notability, verifiability, reliable sources, no original research and, last but not least, do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point. –DanielRigal (talk) 01:04, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Comment: The Wikipedia Art page satisfies every one of those requirements. I also don’t wish to be patronizing, but I believe there is a real, honest failure of those who want to delete the article to understand the fundamental nature of the problem– which is how narrowly you choose to define knowledge, art, verifiability, original research, and disruption.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 01:33, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
+ You are discussing what would be the content of the article if it existed. This discussion concerns itself with whether or not such an article should exist. There is a distinction, in my opinion. Bus stop (talk) 01:41, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Keep: There are several questions here – One is the letter of the law, which is not always enforced here.

First, notability – as a media studies and New Media Art professor & curator, I find this missive “Highly” notable, for obvious reasons. This is a great project, either way it’s resolved. It has also been picked up for discussion in at least one scholarly publication in this first day.
Secondly, verifiability – there external resources on the issue, and it is alrady in discussion in the greater community. I think the issue might be whether the site or the entry is the art, which has not been resolved.
Reliable Sources: there are two blogs, an installation, and a developing discussion on a 10,000 person listserv (Rhizome). I’m sure that this will be undeniably resolved to Wikipedia standards soon.
No Original Research: This might be the weakest leg in that much of it was written by the progenitors, but if needed, objective scholars can be asked to render their thoughts as well.
Don’t Garfinkel the WIKI (DGtW); That’s a bit gray, again on terms as to whether the site or the entry is the “art”. In my opinion, the decision will likely be much clearer after a period of time (as stated before, 90 days, and probably minimum of 30).
–Patlichty (talk) 01:47, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

o I am disappointed to read this after my heartfelt plea on your talk page. Notability is not something that you can simply declare because you are a prof. We ask for reliable sources and you give us blogs. We complain of original research and you seek so remedy it by soliciting yet more original research. I would have expected better. –DanielRigal (talk) 01:59, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Proposal: Although there are a lot of people who want this article kept I believe that everybody above who has evaluated the matter within the scope of the actual policies has decided to delete it. It is also clear that the article is disruptive and that the deletion discussion has played out and is becoming repetitive and branching off into general discussion. I propose that we close this as delete. Any admins with me on this?
–DanielRigal (talk) 01:59, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Keep – Let’s not make it wikipedia editors jobs to determine what is art. The 3 authors are established artists and they have said it is art – that’s really the end of the story. However, after that it is up to the rest of us to determine if it is good and/or worthwhile art. For that, let’s use the 5 pillars of wikipedia. Notability – has been established. It’s been written about in several places, there is a RL lecture discussing it, a curator has vouched for it. Compared with many other wikipedia articles which have no question of notability (for example, minor fictional characters from television shows, decade old chipsets, and manufacturers of Dungeons and Dragons miniature figurines) I’d say this met the established standard easily. Verifiability – the page exists and we’ve all seen it. No one has questioned whether or not it is being discussed on other sites or at academic lectures. Reliable sources – The authors created the page. The content of the page is the work of art itself, and it describes itself.
Again, this doesn’t appear to be an issue because Verifiablity isn’t in question. No original research – none is necessary. We know all we need to know. Do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point – this may be the closest call. While I understand why this is an issue, I don’t think the artists are disrupting wikipedia to create a point. Their purpose is to create an artwork. The point it makes is secondary and the disruption is a side effect. Again, there’s plenty of room on wikipedia for this. It’s of interest. The more you make a stink about it, the stronger the case becomes.
Let it go. DanielRigal – I think you feel too strongly about this and should cool off. With all due respect, Daniel, you may be projecting here. Please take your own advice. There is a very rational and relevant discussion happening here, and you appear to be trying to fast-track it into a deletion, perhaps out of unwillingness to consider differing points of view.
Again, no offense, but you have been quite dismissive of the excellent points being raised here.Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 02:20, 15 February 2009

# Dronthego — I said nothing about whether or not edits should be frozen. The article’s existence is dependent upon the article’s existence. That is the premise upon which the initiating editors created this article. Many articles are deleted, in the visual arts, for failing to meet basic Wikipedia requirements.

* Keep – actually Wikipedia is our canvas; as it states in its byline, “anyone can edit”; and it has been promoted on this premise – that it is the collective work of innumerable individuals. This is a valuable article if just because of the interesting discussion on this page, but also because it is interrogating the nature of user-generated content, and the ability of artists to transform even the most pedestrian platform into something that comments and provokes.

o Yes, anyone can edit. No guarantee that your edit will stick, though. All edits can also be reversed and deleted. Goes both ways, you see.
So if you want to say Wikipedia is your temporary canvas, until someone notices what you did, then sure, it’s your canvas. Equazcion ??/C ? 03:12,

o comment Has an art project like his happened on Wikipedia before? Did Stern and Kidall break new ground or were they inspired by past “projects”? Artblogs (talk) 02:27, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
+ If it has happened before, it’s also been deleted before, rather quickly. Generally articles like this are speedy-deleted without the need for discussion, but in this case someone nominated it for discussion instead, so here we are. It’ll still get deleted in the end, as it violates pretty much every rule we have here. Equazcion ??/C ? 02:30, 15 Feb 2009

* Delete of course. Doesn’t even pass the “amusing hoax” test. – DavidWBrooks 02:31, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Comment One of the reasons I feel this discussion is viable is that it is one of those either/or situations. I dont see how an administrator can call for the AfD to be closed and the page deleted within the first couple hours of its creation. This is way too soon in the process for this to happen unless the person who put it up for deletion is afraid that those of us who support the article will ultimately see the page remain.
* On Facebook there is a fan page for this article “Wikipedia Art” and the founder himself Jimmy Wales just joined this Facebook page. Will this added bit of information help keep this article? This is what I question here. This should in no way be EGO driven. It is what it is. Artintegrated
(talk) 02:35, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o And just how many “Jimmy Wales'” are there on Facebook? Besides which, no, that wouldn’t have any effect on the decision here. Equazcion ??/C ? 02:39, 15 Feb 2009 (UTC)
+ I searched on facebook and found just one Jimmy Wales.
–Dronthego (talk) 02:53, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Comment This “article” seems designed to violate as many of our basic policies as possible. Linking every word? Signatures in article space?
Ridiculous amounts of self-referencing? An article that is about nothing but itself? It is absurd. That’s art for you; some people will always find it absurd. But Wikipedia is not a repository or venue for art experiments. We eliminate graffiti when we find it, and that’s all this is. Powers T 02:51,
15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Where exactly do you draw the line between graffiti and a Wikipedia entry? How is Wikipedia not a publicly moderated graffiti forum with conventions and guidelines for graffiti?Shane Mecklenburger (talk) 05:13, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
* Comment/Keep As I’ve seen the new “Context” section put forth, and not by any of the artists, I think the article is MUCH more solid, is more grounded in external art historical references, and all around more grounded as an “article” per se. There the piece was truly solipsistic in the beginning, and probably fated for swift deletion, I think that comments by people like Frock, the new edits, and the development of the article over such a short amount of time shows its potential. In addition, I move that before deletion, we really should get someone in who’s edited the New Media/Tech Art pages. If they’re here, please chime in, and state you’ve been editing there.–Patlichty (talk) 03:47, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o None of the new material added to the article is germane to this discussion, because none of it addresses the two reasons for deletion: none of it demonstrates reliable source coverage of this art project, and none of it changes the fact that art projects are not allowed in article space.
Baileypalblue (talk) 04:14, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

* Userfy the first edit to User:Artintegrated/Wikipedia Art then delete the rest. If sufficient reliable sources exist and it meets notability requirements, allow creation of a new page under the same name about the February 14, 2009 art experiment. Blogs and mailing lists are generally insufficient to establish notability, but if an art journal, newspaper, or a WP:RS art magazine writes about this, then an article about this experiment is acceptable. Inform user he has a fixed time limit to save his work then delete it as inappropriate use of user space. I recommend a week.
davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 03:18, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Interesting thought. Perhaps that is the whole point of this page, to provoke a such a discussion of this article, on- and off-Wiki, that the controversy itself becomes notable. Authors, are you reading this? Is that your purpose? ???Life of Riley (T?C) 03:38, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
+ Just my reading of things, it looks like the purpose is to provoke a reaction of some type so a student or researcher can have something to report. Whether the resulting controversy or the academic results will rise to the level of notability or not remains to be seen. See Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not for things made up one day, or one week as the case may be. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 03:45, 15 February 2009
(UTC)
o That’s a very fair-minded proposal, but I don’t think it’s a good idea. It would mean going through another deletion discussion starting a week from now, fanning the flames of controversy just after they’ve died down. As suggested earlier in this discussion, if reliable source coverage develops to justify an article on this subject, an administrator can then offer the page creator access to the deleted versions of the article for recreation of an encyclopedic article. Baileypalblue (talk) 04:06, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
* Based on this theory, every page on WIkipedia is art. In terms of an article, I think deletion is in order here, however this might be an interesting concept to explore in project space, that’s usually where we do our navel-gazing. FWIW: This isn’t the first time someone has made art out of Wikipedia, at one point some fellow thought our deletion logs could be used for art. He created a website & tool to gather the log info for his project. This project may still be active somewhere, although I suspect we’ve taken the joy out of it now that most of our deletions contain policy related summaries rather than the first sentence or two from the article.
–Versageek 03:43, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
* Move to project space or if not, user space, and then if the sources are specific and substantial enough, consider a shorter article about this in mainspace. .DGG (talk) 03:47, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o Could you elaborate on the rationale of moving to project space?
I’m under the impression that project space is for projects that directly involve improving the encyclopedia or its accessibility. What does this do in that capacity? Equazcion ??/C ? 03:53, 15 Feb 2009 (UTC)

* Delete – this is not what Wikipedia is for (see WP:NOT). As an article, it fails the notability test. If anyone wants to write a well-sourced article about internet art as applied to wikis, be my guest, but this isn’t it. Robofish (talk) 04:10, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
* Comment: I don’t think it’s a good idea to move this project to user space or any other space. If this art project is, as has been suggested, a breaching experiment, if it is, as has been suggested, an attempt to generate controversy to justify the experiment’s own existence, then I don’t see how the encyclopedia will benefit from continuing to maintain it. I retain my original opinion that this project is an attempt to use the resources of Wikipedia for purposes separate from the intended purpose of building an encyclopedia, and if that’s the case, then Wikipedia should not maintain it anywhere. Baileypalblue (talk) 04:32, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
o I added this article today at around 3:15. I felt that it would absolutely pass the test and remain here on Wikipedia. Already though several of the “Delete people” have gone and changed edits on Kildall’s page here and one said that Jimmy Wales has his profile hidden on a Facebook site and I showed the link to make sure people knew this was an incorrect statement and even Equazcion said it was a mistake on his discussion page but he didn’t include that on here bringing into question the neutrality that is supposed to be the best of Wikipedia. I also know about some overreaching into past edits that seem very underhanded. Lets be bigger than that on here. Integrity is Wikipedia’s best policy. Andy Warhol, himself said art is anything you can get away with. That said, lets do the right thing here. Artintegrated (talk) 04:40, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
+ Oh no no no sir, I did not say that at all. I said that the person who claims to be Jimmy Wales that you’ve got in your group is in fact not the real Jimmy Wales. You continue to misunderstand me. I gave you this link to the actual Jimmy wales page. This is not the same member you have in your facebook group.Equazcion ??/C ? 04:50, 15 Feb 2009 (UTC)

(UTC)
* Your friends told you so? That’s your argument? Look: No one’s asking you to take my word for it. Since Jimmy Wales on a Facebook group for fans of the page we’re considering for deletion has no bearing whatsoever on said deletion, there’s no way I could possibly care less. I told you as much on my talk page but you asked me to continue anyway, and I did. I’m sorry if you’re unsatisfied with the outcome. Equazcion ??/C ? 04:56, 15 Feb 2009 (UTC)

* Delete per WP:OR, WP:NEO, WP:SOAPBOX, WP:NFT, WP:V, WP:N and quite a few others. The self-referential citations alone point to how non-notable this concept is. Simply put, if this is a concept for collaboration people wish to try, put it in the Wikipedia namespace. It flat out does not belong in article space. Resolute 06:16, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
* Delete, the only verifiability or notability here is self-referential, and that’s the only way this article can and will be. This definitely shouldn’t be namespace moved either, it belongs in a different Wiki altogether; this one is a collaborative encyclopedia, not a collaborative art project. — Consumed Crustacean (talk) 06:16, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

    Artintegrated here.
    Thanks for putting this up.
    I hope we get many more discussion about this article.
    We will be hearing more about Wikipedia Art. I know this much is true.

    Thank you,

    jon


  2. dj_enkidu:

    it is indeed self-referential. what is controversial about this? wikipedia is an encyclopedia and does not contain self-referential articles. articles that are about wikipedia itself are organized under “Wikipedia:”, such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:FAQ_Index . i like scott kildall’s previous work, but this one is just not smart enough. successful, maybe, not as art but as self-promotion since it happened to be good advertisement for the artists names. i dont get why anyone thinks this is interesting, though. i have nothing against “trolling as an art form”, but i cant see how it addresses any problems with wikipedia. (issues such as its credentials that depend on mainstream media, government information, etc – the seemingly independent but in essence recycling and recollecting of centralized information are interesting but unfortunately not addressed in this work) if this kind of thing would be allowed in wikipedia, this could only be possible by abandoning the existing rules which would make it full of garbage, that would be the end of wikipedia.


  3. jo:

    This from Davin Heckman on the [iDC] list:

    Well, I suppose if one were to write a sort of meta level on “Wikipedia Art,” you could justify an entry, in the same way that you can justify an entry on Mariliths and Dungeons and Dragons. The D&D entry does not present the Marilith as a “real” creature, but rather it defines it as an object that exists within a fictional or imaginary world. In the case of Wikipedia Art, “Wikipedia Art” is an invented concept that is being hashed out by a bunch of people, and as such, it would seem to merit an entry on the topic. But, off the cuff, I would say, the entry is not the art itself, any more than conceptual art is ever contained strictly within a discrete artifact.

    But more important than the concept of Wikipedia Art is the concept of Wikipedia itself. As always, the question is the difference between the thing and its representation, or about Borges’ and the uselessness of a 1:1 scale map. To be useful, the map must represent the totality of a territory within a fraction of its total space. To be useful, the map must also provide a sufficient amount of detail in order to achieve the desired outcome.

    An encyclopedic entry maps an area of knowledge. A “good” encyclopedic entry should provide the reader with a lay of the land which is more efficient than the text to which it refers, it is a way of putting a big idea or concept into a manageable nutshell. Otherwise, what’s the point of the encyclopedic entry in the first place? But, if the concept in the nutshell, is larger than the concept out of the nutshell, then I would say that it fails as an encyclopedia entry. Wikipedia, as a community, has a right to correct failed entries.

    In the case of “Wikipedia Art,” either the term refers to a larger set of conceptual problems, in which case, it is not “performed” on Wikipedia… but rather, it is being performed outside of the encyclopedia, and, like a good encyclopedia should, Wikipedia only provides a limited map to the actual “art.” But, if “Wikipedia Art” is strictly performed on Wikipedia, then it falls out of consideration as a proper Wikipedia entry and becomes an appropriation of Wikipedia by artists (which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your opinion of Wikipedia and the ideology that it expresses). And, Wikipedia has a right, as an experimental community of intention, to protect the integrity of its community’s intention through its own internal logics… Otherwise it becomes something other than wikipedia. One way or another, it will come down in favor of a particular definition of wikipedia, and this will inevitably challenge one set of priorities and affirm another.

    So, I think that Wikipedia Art needs to figure out what it is. Is it an encyclopedia entry documenting a conceptual project which has played out over a larger landscape? Or, is it a conceptual project attempting to describe itself, and struggling with each iteration of its representation? Does the Wikipedia entry provide a metacomment on an imaginary idea? Or is the metacommentary what we are engaging in just confused rumination over what amounts to a “trap street,” the desire to personally mark, what is otherwise a pretty good map?

    To state it differently: This is not a pipe, but we are all smoking it, anyway. And, though I don’t know the first thing about the artists, I guess it’s more interesting than what I was planning to do right now (grade papers). So, aside from my scrupulous quibbles about the essence of an encyclopedia entry, I do have to say, “thank you,” whoever you are, in spite of myself.

    Peace!
    Davin Heckman
