Gun Camera Adds Graffiti to Other People's Photos
« on: June 28, 2008, 02:41:22 AM »
Cool!



Quote from: blog.wired.com
This is the Image Fulgurator, half guerrilla-art stunt and half homemade-gadget awesomeness. Berlin based artist Julius von Bismarck uses his oddly named camera-mod to project images onto street furniture where they appear in the photos of strangers, but remain invisible to their eyes.

How? It's simple. The device has a slave unit on top which is triggered when it sees a flash fire. This triggers his own flash, which fires through the back of the camera, through a film slide containing his slogan and then on and out through the lens at the front. This works because a camera is pretty much a projector in reverse. And because the light-graffiti is fired at the exact same moment the unsuspecting victim takes a picture, it ends up in their photograph and paranoid mind ramblings result. Neat.

Yeah, I should have put up a warning.  Other people watching should just skip to the end.

That's cool. Time consuming, but I guess it's digital graffiti.. its interesting.

What's this sign everyone's taking a photo of? "You are entering the American sector, carrying weapons off duty forbidden obey traffic rules"

where is this & who is the sign intended for? some sort of officers or something?

is there like, internet graffiti - where people "tag" other people's websites? (not necessarily hacking - but like something with a more artistic agenda)

It's Checkpoint Charlie, the main border crossing between West and East Berlin during the  Cold War.

A)  Human beings look stupid when they are confused.

B)  Get a beardcut, hippie!
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!
