One Million Photographs: A Day's Worth of Flickr Uploads by Erik Kessels
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
Dutch photographer Erik Kessels is no stranger to the massive amount of imagery that surfaces on the web -- his latest installation, at Amsterdam's Future of the Photography Museum in FOAM, features more than one million photographs that he printed and tossed into into the What's Next exhibition space.
Kessels writes that his aim was to visualize the 'drowning in pictures of the experiences of others" -- Flickr is currently home to more than six billion photos -- about the same amount of photos uploaded to Facebook every two months.
