Straight lines are surprisingly hard to draw with a mouse

Remember when you played Telephone as a kid? No matter how simple the message seemed to be in the beginning, the end result was a garbled mess of nonsense. This is the straight line-drawing version of Telephone by Clement Valla. Five hundred individuals were asked to trace a straight line, but there was one catch:

Each new user only sees the latest line drawn, and can therefore only trace this latest imperfect copy. As the line is reproduced over and over, it changes and evolves—kinks, trembling motions and errors are exaggerated through the process.

Watch as a single straight lines turns into a mess of scribbles.
