Be famous

15x15bafta.jpgIn 1968 Andy Warhol stated that; ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes’. Considering the mass popularity of reality TV shows such as Big Brother & The X Factor, and the ability to publish your own video content via media sharing sites such as YouTube; Warhol’s statement seems more pertinent today than ever.

Using Warhol’s statement as a premise, 15×15 advances the statement into the 21 st century: Utilising new media technologies; the web and mobile cameraphones, 15×15 offers the opportunity for anyone, anywhere, to be world famous……. for 15 seconds.
