Borut Batagelj and Franc Solina and Peter Peer (2004) 15 Seconds of Fame — An Interactive, Computer-Vision Based Art Installation. In: 12th ACM International Conference on Multimedia, October 10-16, 2004, New York, NY, USA.
"15 seconds of fame" is an interactive installation which every 15 seconds generates a new pop-art portrait of a randomly selected person from the audience. The installation was inspired by Andy Warhol’s ironical statement that "In the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes". The installation detects human faces in digital images of people who are standing in front of the installation. Pop-art portraits are then generated from randomly chosen faces in the audience by applying randomly selected filters. These portraits are shown in 15 second intervals on the flat-panel computer monitor which is framed as a painting. Electronic copies of each displayed portrait can be ordered by e-mail.
