Giant Glove
The white glove tracking project has an interesting outcome, Michael Jackson meets Mickey Mouse… –

On May 4th, 2007, we asked internet users to help isolate Michael Jackson’s white glove in all 10,060 frames of his nationally televised landmark performance of Billy Jean. 72 hours later 125,000 gloves had been located. wgt_data_v1.txt (listed below) is the culmination of data collected. It is released here for all to download and use as an input into any digital system. Just as the data was gathered collectively it is our hope that it will be visualized collectively.

  1. I can now say that I can name 125 thousand reasons for not doing certain projects! Don’t get me wrong, this is damn funny, sometimes not for the glove, but for the distortion of the surrounding area. He put his hand in his pocket and all of a sudden the whole front portion of his pants doubled in size….or in a horrifying prelude of what was to come, anytime his hand came close to his face, everything became horribly distorted. But when he slicks his hair back and it looks like his head was in a space warp…omg! strange and funny

  2. i don’t get it. there are 10,060 frames.
    there is one MJ. one glove.

    how can there be more than 10,060 gloves to find. one per frame.
