Art Exhibit of the Day: In an effort to illustrate just how many photos are posted to the web each and every day, Erik Kessels put together an exhibition for Foam that consists of every single photo posted on Flickr within a 24-hour period.
The result? A ceiling-high stack of over 1 million photos that required multiple rooms to hold.
"We’re exposed to an overload of images nowadays," Kessels said. “By printing all the images uploaded in a 24-hour period, I visualise the feeling of drowning in representations of other peoples’ experiences.”
Mind not sufficiently blown? Flickr represent a paltry percentage of total online photo uploads. By comparison, Facebook users post 25 times as many photos, every day.
