Work in progress

In order to my world record attempt for the „largest pavement art by one artist “ i came up with the idea of using a quote by Andy Warhol:
„In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes“, which appeared in the program for a 1968 exhibition of his work at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden.

In this large scale painting of severeal 1000 sm i am compromising this quote:
„Nowaday in our fast growing second world of internet media the courtesy of users has shrunken to a fraction of these 15 minutes .
Studies have shown the the average amount of attention while scrolling through media is linked to less than 8 seconds of time.
beeing famous is just a blink of an eye away- but because the net is filled up with milloins of tons of content the deflection of attention for the single information is immense.“

In this relation i doubt warhol.: everyone will be be famous for just 8 seconds … and this will decline in frequency for sure.
