On May Day, after an exhibition at Smart Clothes Gallery in New York, Molly Crabapple released her latest collection, "Shell Game" to the public quite literally - under a Creative Commons license.
It was the year when everyone sat down in the main squares of their cities and said the old machine is broken.
Each of her paintings depicts a news story from 2011, including the mortgage bubble, the Greek anti-austerity protests, and Occupy Wall Street. Her tribute to the revolutions and crises that echoed around the world was inspired by by dissidents and activists, supported by crowd sourcing, and then given back to the world.
