The Middle Finger Response

The Middle Finger Response is a curated selection by Guido Segni 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.
With a background in Hacktivism, net art and video art, Guido Segni, aka Clemente Pestelli, b. 1980, Italy - lives and works somewhere at the intersections between art, pop internet culture and data hallucination.
