A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals

Somebody draws a line. Somebody else traces it. Somebody else traces that. And so on 497 more times. It's neat.

Clement Valla asked 500 of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk users to trace a line. The first user started with a straight line, the next user had to trace the previous user’s trace. The result is A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals.
