r/place was first launched by Reddit on April 1, 2017, and was revived a few days ago (April 1-5, 2022). Signed in Reddit users could place one pixel at a time, once every five minutes, anywhere on the digital canvas by tapping/clicking on it. The pixels or tiles form a real-time mosaic curated by (a.o. sub-Reddit and Discord?) groups who often fought to not be “painted over”, i.e. to keep their image on the canvas. A truly collective colourful piece. This image is a screenshot, the original digital artwork is wiped clean again.
