A mind meld of Internet art starts at 2 p.m. EST Friday. The "electro-savvy" "chanteuse" singer Imogen Heap will be debuting her crowd-sourced documentary "Love the Earth" on a live webcast from London's Royal Albert Hall.

The film was pieced together from more than 1,000 pieces of nature footage shot by over 100 filmmakers around the world with a soundtrack by Heap. Heap and filmmaker Thomas Ermacora hope to make it an annual event, creating collaborative films that "celebrate the planet."

Collaborations are coming fast and furious on the Web these days, from Star Wars Uncut to the Johnny Cash Project. It's fascinating to watch as artists wrangle wide-ranging submissions to create a finished piece of work. Heap's project, at least from the trailer sneak peek, should live up to the others.
