Crowdsourced webcam videos
Pics or it didn't happen
Proofs of existence of a cloud worker
Between June and July 2014, in order to proof their existence and their status of crowd worker, 40+ workers from Amazon Mechanical Turk have been paid 90 dollarcents for re-enacting a clip found on youtube titled “pics or it didn’t happen” in front of their webcam.
The video is also part of the project Pics or it didn’t happen developed for HOC / Contemporary and has been presented on September 12th, 2014 at Pavillon social Kunstverein in Lucca.
