24 Hours of Flickr Photos

A gallery exhibition of 24 hours worth of Flickr photos that visualizes the overload of images in today's digital age.
A brilliant gallery exhibition that takes all the photos uploaded to Flickr in a 24 hour period and fills a room with them. The artist explains: "We’re exposed to an overload of images nowadays. This glut is in large part the result of image-sharing sites like Flickr, networking sites like Facebook, and picture-based search engines. Their content mingles public and private, with the very personal being openly and un-self-consciously displayed. By printing all the images uploaded in a 24-hour period, I visualise the feeling of drowning in representations of other peoples’ experiences." I really like art projects like this ... Have a few ideas of my own that I'd like to get to one day in this realm. There's something really interesting about physically representing the formless data.
