We associate Wikipedia with transparency, but much of the editing process is opaque to us. If we look closer, we start to see that some articles are edited much more than others. If one of the most edited articles of all time is about World Wrestling Entertainment, what aren’t we talking about?
Wiki Receipts is a pair of IoT objects that show the accumulation of Wikipedia edits on any two articles. Each object is assigned an article, and with each edit made that day, it prints an increasingly wider line. Wiki Receipts aims to visualize and materialize the knowledge we are choosing to produce.
