“Take a concept, one word, and plug it into Flickr and take the first 50 images and average them using Photoshop or similar program.”

averageStories

stories

averagingRainbows

rainbow

Essentially, what we are looking at is the Flickr community’s overall concept of what “stories” and “rainbow” means.

I don’t think that sentence properly conveys how cool that idea is.  Let me try again.  In this part of the World Wide Web (the whole WORLD), it is possible to create what is, essentially, a visual representation of an ABSTRACT concept.  These images are the results of FIFTY different perspectives on ONE idea.

Now that is cool.
