Don't Cross Me!
A shared canvas space online where you may draw whatever you'd like, so long as you don't cross anybody else!

See the project here!

Don't Cross Me is intended to be a light-hearted metaphor for our basic expectations for what free speech is: "You may say whatever you want as long as it does not incite harm". Don't Cross Me has no repercussions for hoarding the precious 800x800 canvas space, but if a user draws over another user's line(s) then every participant's lines will be lost forever. This mechanic raises questions about individual expression, unspoken distribution of resources and perhaps gauge whether the resulting behavior of users leans towards unspoken altruism to allow everyone to have a space/voice or towards nihilism and self-centricity.
