In Conversation Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern.


In 2009, an article was published to Wikipedia, called "Wikipedia Art". 
To substantiate its publication, several articles were simultaneously 
published and cited. In the following few hours, the article was 
fiercely debated on Wikipedia, and eventually deleted; legal wrangling 
followed, with specific reference to the use of the term "Wikipedia".

The work, by Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern, was selected for 
exhibition at the Venice Bienalle that year, and is now on display as 
part of "Made Real" at the Furtherfield Gallery in London 
http://www.furtherfield.org/exhibition/made-real. We caught up with 
Scott and Nathaniel, to get a first-hand account of the work, and the 
culture of Wikipedia.
