A Blind Camera

Array
Gear  |  Projects
The camera has no lens, no sensor and no optics whatsoever. Just a faux shutter button that triggers a cellphone hidden inside to retrieve and display a photo from Flickr that was taken at the exact same moment.
"Taking a photo means making a memory. Choosing a moment in time and framing a situation. Archiving it or making it public. Either way, we create a visual item that we have an emotional attachment to through our memory. Photos help us to remember moments in our past. Often they even become a memory in their own right. For many, making their moments public through services like Flickr is already part the process of photography itself, creating archives which contain a vast collection of visual fragments of individual lives.

Based on the popularity of the "P-TREE" at Denmark's Roskilde Festival. Aandeboom has "produced 50 P-TREES in the typical Roskilde Orange color, placed in 2 different spots near the main stage," to the delight (and utility) of "more than 100,000 visitors." Cool!
"The P-TREE is a temporary tree-friendly urinal that can be fixed on every tree using straps and lashings. The P-tree gives a feeling of freedom during peeing. It is the same as peeing into the wild. The hoses from the urinal can be combined and connected on a waste pipe with container. The P-tree is very accessible for festivals, public gardens, events, etc. P-tree and Lashings are available in different RAL-colors."
