r/place Void: A Story Of Chaos And Creativity

r/place is up and running its canvas once more this year. Currently, various users are expressing themselves with different forms of art. 

The artwork contains characters from games, manage, anime cartoons and even some political views.

However, one of the most prominent works of art is back, The Void.

r/place allows the users to express themselves artistically. However, among the art lurks the Void, an entity that consumes anything around it. Furthermore, this year, the Void is not as prominent but slowly creeping up to other art around it.

In this article, we will discuss more about r/place and the Void.

What Is r/place?

r/place is a collaborative project and a social experiment currently being hosted on the social networking site Reddit.

The project first debuted on April Fool’s Day, 2017, and is currently ongoing.

Moreover, the project allows users to place pixels on a vast canvas and create art.

Over a million users put up their pixel art in r/place in 2017. 

However, in 2022, over 10.38 million users put up their pixel art in r/place.

This shows the significance of the canvas to the Reddit community and the hivemind they share.

However, users can only post one pixel at a time.

The time between each pixel placement is approximately 5 minutes.

However, if your account uses a registered email, you can place your pixel in less time.

What Is r/place Void?

r/place Void is a creation by various users of Reddit that originated from a meme face of Mr.Incredible.

The story behind the Void is that the evil Mr.Incredible was able to breach into the r/place to create the Void and spread its effects all over the canvas.

But, various users from different communities banded together to stop the Void from spreading even more within the r/place canvas.

However, due to the hive mind, the Void in every r/place keeps increasing with tendrils in various spots.

Furthermore, the users call the main origination point of the Void the Mothervoid.

After the origination of the Mothervoid, users who find the Mothervoid interesting can find various fanmade art and images depicting the horrors of the Mothervoid.
