Describe your idea!

WIKIWEAR is a generated collection of automatically created T-Shirts from unused Wikipedia images. (http://wikiwear.co)

How did you start?

I’ve once discovered Wikipedia’s unused images directory (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UnusedFiles) and fell in love with it.

Which difficulties did you face?

I had to figure out how to grab the images and it’s meta information without any API’s.

Which technologies did you use?

I’ve used the PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser (http://simplehtmldom.sourceforge.net) and the CSS background-blend-mode Property to create the shirts.

Who is your favourite creative developer / studio?

I’m a huge fan of the ‘The Free Art and Technology Lab’ (http://fffff.at) and the folks from ‘Stupid Hackathon’ (http://stupidhackathon.com).
