As midnight approached on November 2, web sites were being built, maps (expanding Canada down eastern and western coasts) were being ironically redrawn, and marriage proposals (marryanamerican.com) were bandied about. In that sea, Sorry Everybody (www.sorryeverybody.com) seemed just another anti-Bush screed, but its simple concept has evolved into more of an art project than a political polemic. In more than 500 (and counting) galleries, featuring nearly 3000 photos, individuals hold notes expressing their sorrow over the recent U.S. election results. Scrolling them, what at first seems like a one-note message becomes a panorama of human commitment, disappointment and dedication to change. Sure, the inevitable gun-toting "I’m Not Sorry" galleries soon followed, but for a brief moment, a participatory medium put a human face on exit polls and colour-coded maps.
