Paid spontaneous photography taken by Amazon Mechanical Turk workers
Descrizione
The Middle Finger Response is a curated selection of 300+ spontaneous self portraits of cloud workers I commissioned travelling around one of the most represantive crowdsourcing platform: Amazon Mechanical Turk. All the workers in the selection have been paid about 0.5$ in order to take a webcam picture of themselves showing their face, their context and, ultimately, their middle finger response. It's just a cynical but sincere attempt to establish a dialogue between the artist, the public and the crowd dispersed through the new frontiers of leisure, labour and exploitation in the age of the big cloud. www.crowdworkersoftheworldunite.com
