The Sheep Market

  • The Sheep Market is a collection of 10,000 sheep made by workers on Amazon's Mechanical Turk.
    Workers were paid 0.02 ($USD) to "draw a sheep facing to the left." Animations of each sheep's creation may be viewed at TheSheepMarket.com
  • “’If you please--draw me a sheep . . .’ 
    When a mystery is too overpowering, one dare not disobey. Absurd as it might seem to me, a thousand miles from any human habitation and in danger of death, I took out of my pocket a sheet of paper and my fountain-pen. But then I remembered how my studies had been concentrated on geography, history, arithmetic and grammar, and I told the little chap (a little crossly, too) that I did not know how to draw. He answered me: 
    ‘That doesn't matter. Draw me a sheep . . .’”
