Wats:ON? Festival 2011: SPEED
Hi-Speed Photo Booth
A project of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry
Featuring Pablo Garcia, Jeff Lieberman and Spike Wolff
The Hi-Speed Photo Booth stretches time. Visitors walk into a spiral shaped structure and record three seconds of action; the booth then plays back a minute of mesmerizing slow motion video (16x slower than normal speed). During the booth's premiere at Carnegie Mellon's 2011 wats:ON? festival:SPEED, around 300 slow motion portraits were uploaded to YouTube in one weekend.
In this compact exposition, the booth designers Pablo, Jeff and Spike speak about the plasticity of time from the very fast to the ultra slow.
