“This image is 100 meters long. There are 178 people in the picture, all shot in the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge on Warshauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer of 2007. Only a few of the people in the photograph seemed to know I was taking their picture.”
I find the people in this photo amazingly compelling. I want to know each one’s story: why are you carrying a large empty picture frame? What happened that both of you are wearing a patch on your right eye? What are you listening to? What are you two talking about so animatedly? Where are you going?
Close to the right side of the photo, you find one gentleman who definitely noticed he was being photographed. Nice reward for scrolling all the way across.
The eStarling frame is a standalone Wi-Fi LCD photo frame that connects to a wireless network and automatically displays photos e-mailed to it in a slideshow format. Additionally you can specify an RSS photo feed from Flickr based on your own tagged keywords. You can even shoot photos on your mobile phone then e-mail them directly to your eStarling frame for display.
Expensive, but very cool. This seems to me to be a good beginning to the long-awaited and much-touted ‘smart’ home appliances.
