Custom software recreates a Sol LeWitt drawing. The software also posts instructions on Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk. Human workers execute the drawings online based on the instructions. The workers are paid 5¢ for each drawing. The software then assembles the Mechanical Turk drawings in a grid. The software drawings and the Mechancial Turk drawings are presented side by side.
