GISHWHES is a  scavenger hunt hosted by actor Misha Collins (best known from starring in series Supernatural) . It is comprised of a global community of thousands of individuals (+94 countries) that “come together” for a week online once a year, form international teams, and then go out into the real world and create “art” the likes of which the world has never seen. Last year the Guinness World Record was broken for the Largest Scavenger Hunt with 14,580 participants!

This content is captured as videos or images to memorialize the annual Gishwhes experience. Art pieces range from the touching: “Take a picture of you hugging a war veteran” or “Create a video of you visiting a children’s hospital and giving a puppet show” to the weirdly sublime: “an image of a formal tea party replete with parasols, silverware and a string quartet situated in a junkyard or garbage dump” or “a fully dressed storm trooper cleaning a pool next to a sunbather”.

Here you can see some pictures from the previous GISHWHES participants.
