Assembly Line (Compensating AMT labor)

Brief description

The artist mobilizes Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) workers to photograph themselves, parts of their selfies are used to create artworks. When artworks are sold the AMT workers are compensated through a bonus system. This is presented as a fairer way of compensating click workers as their labor is often both hidden and exploited in the context of AI and facial recognition.
