    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 to crop them from the wide-angle picture of people who are standing in front of the installation. Pop-art portraits are then generated by applying different, randomly selected filters to a randomly chosen face from the audience. 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.
