    “15 seconds of fame” is an interactive art installation which elevates the face of a randomly selected observer for 15 seconds into a “work of art”. The installation was inspired by Andy Warhol’s statement that “In the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes” as well as by the pop-art style of his works. The critical part of the installation is detection of faces which enables the cropping of faces from the wide-angle image of people standing in front of the installation. In the paper we describe color-based face detection in detail and many problems that had to be solved to make it reliable in different illumination conditions and scenes.
