rAndom International: A Tribute to Francis Bacon

A Tribute to Francis Bacon. rAndom International (2008).

The triptych "prints" images of viewers by using an embeded camera and light sensitive paper.  After a few momements, the image disappears and the process begins again.

Leonora Oppenheim wrote this about the experience:

"While the Temporary Printing Machine might be a seemingly pointless exercise we enjoyed the interactive experience, the clever use of simple technology and the thoughts it provoked about the futility of trying to capture a moment in time and our obsession with our own image."

Here's a video of the Temporary Printing Machine.
