Environments like 4chan, Know Your Meme, Reddit, and Canv.as are hotbeds for the creation of collective imagery. Usually in response to a cultural, political, or emotional phenomenon, the communities on these sites can generate dozens or hundreds of variations on a single image or concept. Considered internet "memes", these image families are often very astute condensations of shared feelings.
