World Record Rasterbation

The Gathering (TG) is one of the largest computer parties in the world. This year’s session opened with a huge Scream!

The Gathering is held annually in Vikingskipet Olympic Arena in Hamar, Norway, and lasts for five consecutive days. Arranged every year since 1992, The Gathering now attracts more than 5200 people. The Gathering is festival catering to artists, gamers, techies and just plain nerds of all sorts that share a common goal of convening together to show off and see what other people with the same or related interests do.

A Scream of 94 m2 is both a world record reproduction of Edvard Munch’s famous work, as well as a world record of free hanging rasterbation

The Scream from Nature collaborates with The Gathering to put focus on the environment. Making the world’s largest reproduction of Edvard Munch’s famous The Scream, gives attention to what each of us can do to contribute for nature; like recycling and sustainable consumption. Norwegian news channel NRK Dagsnytt had this report from the event >>

The Scream of 94 m2 was made by a rasterbation technique, where a photo of The Scream was divided into pixels, and each pixel printed on an A4 sheet of paper. With thorough work, the sheets of paper were put together into an enormous final work. By 2013, this work holds the world record for largest free hanging rasterbation. It is also the world’s largest reproduction of The Scream.
