It is hard to believe that YouTube was first introduced into society on Valentine's Day, 2005. Who HASN'T watched a video on YouTube? It has grown exponentially since that day.
Recently, YouTube, in connection with the Guggenheim Museum in New York City,
sent a call out to the world for artists to submit their videos. They were looking for creative videos, something that people haven't seen before.
Over 23,000 people responded.
From 90 countries.
A panel of jurors selected a "shortlist" of 200 videos. From THAT list, 25 videos were chosen to be the best.
On October 21, 2010, the 25 winning videos were announced at a huge party at the Guggenheim Museum. The videos were also broadcast outside on the side of the building.
One of my favorites is called, "Birds on a Wire". A man was reading the newspaper and saw a photo of birds sitting on a wire. The birds reminded him of notes on a scale, so he cut the picture out and converted the "birds" to notes and made music. How creative is that?
