Experiments in Celebrity

How do you feel when you see your name in digital lights? I wasn't too comfortable with digital fame at first, but it depends what I'm known for;) I could definitely get used to the Astronaut bio...

The Institute for Contemporary Arts commissioned A Concept Web Work by 8gg.

"Search Your Name" is a short online game, the purpose of which is to provide the user with the brief illusion that they are a celebrity.

Interesting experiment...I suppose the web has already spawned a new form of celebrity, where 'regular' people with specialized skills develop niche fan bases.
