Selected publications, awards and shows
- Hotlist By Ken Goldberg
Artforum (USA). November 2001.
"Artist June Houston set up a webcam under her bed in 1995 so that others could help her watch out for ghosts. Houston's deadpan site now has thirty-one live black-and-white webcams installed in her closets and basement. Thousands of loyal sentries e-mail detailed reports of what they see-or believe they see. Houston's haunting problem is thus presented for group analysis. Safety in numbers!"
