An installation that makes time lapse collages. Made from a Raspberry Pi computer, custom software and a webcam.

The Automated Digital Photo Collage is a machine that creates time-lapse like images. But, instead of each image being totally replaced, only what has changed is layered over the previous image, creating an increasingly complex and layered image.

I'm raising $3,000 for equipment for the project: 2 projectors, 2 printers, paper, ink and lenticular postcards. 

The Automated Digital Photo Collage will be on view in my solo show, Mind the Gaps/Mine the Gaps, at the Hudson Guild Gallery (441 W. 26th St.) from February 21 to April 11, 2013.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Potential pitfalls include: printers jamming and computers breaking which is why I'm making four machines: two for the installation and two replacements in case something happens.


  • Memory is fallible, we compensate by collecting things that trigger memories. The line between hoarding & collecting is blurred with digital media. What is the visual equivalent of hoarding? What does it look like when we want to remember everything we see? What do we forget anyway? What gaps appear in our collections/hoards and our memories? The Automated Digital Photo Collage generates composite images, amassing selections from whatever changes in its view, virtually and visually hoarding.
