DOPPELCAM

doppelcam logoEvery two minutes, we take more pictures than the whole of humanity in the 1800s.

28% of all photos ever taken were taken this year.

DOPPELCAM operates within the photographic redundancy.

DOPPELCAM questions the value of modern photography.

Are more commonplace pictures worth less?

DOPPELCAM emphasizes the power of the masses and eschews the notion we are all unique snowflakes.

DOPPELCAM exposes the proliferation of global culture. 

DOPPELCAM is the portal into the “uncanny valley”, a strangely familiar parallel universe.

DOPPELCAM is the universe telling you it’s having deja vu.

DOPPELCAM puts the anticipation of not knowing what you’re going to get back into digital photography.

Are you tired of contributing to photographic waste?

Constantly transferring photos from hard drive to hard drive?

Consider photography an (un)natural resource worthy of conservation.

DOPPELCAM is a digital camera that only displays images ‘visually similar’ to those taken with it. It sends the source photo through an image-drop search engine and displays the top result.

SKY VIEW uses your current location to display the sky above you. As you move with it, the sky view changes accordingly.

This project inputs the users coordinates into Google Street View’s api and changes the camera angle parameter to always be pointing directly up. It also orients the camera in the direction the user is heading. IMG_5856

Sky views tend to be more glitchy than street views. Less attention is paid to them.

TINDER IN THE MIDDLE

By Leon Eckert and Melanie Hoffsidebyside

Tinder in the Middle is a man-in-the-middle attack using Tinder. The messages Melanie receives from male matches are the messages Leon writes to female matches and vice versa.

We pair our matches up and they carry out conversations through us.tinder-diagram

TELL ME WHAT TO SAY TO STRANGERS

Each kind of public space creates a particular environment in which different forms of interaction are facilitated. This project allows for interactions between strangers in one public space to inform the interactions between strangers in another. Here I become a communication link between two distinct kinds of public space. The face-to-face urban environment of Washington Square Park and the relatively anonymous online space of Periscope.

 

This scope had 494 total viewers.
