I found this video experiment in crowdsourcing while researching the various representations of Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera on YouTube for my MP:me project.
"Perry Bard is an artist living in New York. She works individually and collaboratively on interdisciplinary projects for public space ... Her web and public-space project Man with a Movie Camera: The Global Remake invites participation in a mashup of a 1929 film belonging to world cultural history."[cit]

"Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera (1929) is a stunning avant-garde, documentary meta-narrative which celebrates Soviet workers and filmmaking. The film uses radical editing techniques and cinematic pyrotechnics to portray a typical day in Moscow from dawn to dusk. But Vertov isn't just recording reality, he transforms it through the power of the camera's 'kino-glaz' (cinema eye). Vertov's rich imagery transcends the earth-bound limitations of our everyday ways of seeing."[cit]
