Product Description

There is a public CCTV camera trained on Times Square, at the corner of 7th Ave and West 46th St. Every day, thousands of people look at other people through it.

At 8.05pm on 17th Feb 2011, a user of the anonymous messageboard 4chan knocked down the card stand that lingers tantalisingly in the corner of the CCTV camera’s frame.

This publication shows the image responses posted to 4chan’s /b/ messageboard chronologically and simultaneously by various anonymous collaborators, who for one brief moment were connected virtually by vicarious urges, united in the act of witnessing.
