/r/place | Artwork


It's hard to describe /r/place to someone who wasn't there at the time. The best way to explain it is to see in your minds eye a blank 1000x1000 canvas that you can place a block of colour on, however, someone can soon easily replace your colour with their own. You can place as many blocks of colour on the canvas as you like, but every time you place a block, you must wait five minute until you can place a new block.

Now imagine 213,595+ Reddit users over the period of three days, starting on the first of April, and ending on the third, using the canvas as their play ground - it was quite something to behold.
