Hugo Simon – #OneMinute
Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo
#OneMinute tends to propose a new way to create an image. Users are invited to enter a Hashtag of their choice, then – connected to the famous Instagram network – the machine records every picture uploaded with that similar hashtag during the last minute prior to execution of the programme. By gathering this information, each time the machine is able to produce a new singular image mapping the flow according to the popularity of the hashtag. This project is a follow-up of a reflection on the relationship between digital and print.
