It’s 4:30 am and I just finished making the most awkward 404 Not Found page on the internet.

Steve Lambert Awkward 404

This is a speed project: 3.5 hours. This kind of idea only comes to you at 12:30am. And you gotta do it then or you’re never gonna do it. (The missing 30 minutes in the timeline was a bike ride). Made at SPACES in Cleveland, OH!

People Staring at Computers” is a photographic intervention.

I wrote a simple application that took one picture every minute. If it found a face, it uploaded the photo to my server. I installed the app around NYC over three days, collecting more than a thousand photos.

Before sharing the photos online, I decided to exhibit them in the same places they were originally captured. So I wrote another app that could be remotely triggered after being installed on all the computers in one location. When the app starts up, it takes a picture and slowly fades in that photo. A moment later, it starts cycling through older photos.

Most people instinctively quit the app less than 10 seconds after recognizing their own face, so the exhibition was relegated to the unused machines.
