Flickr 24 hour photo exhibit

With a variety of photo uploading and sharing services like Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr, people are uploading millions of snapshots every day, but they may not always remember that they're offering the public a glimpse into their personal lives. Perhaps visualizing exactly how many images are added every day may give users pause before sharing their next photo. Photographer Erik Kessels currently has an installation at the Foam gallery that's filled with print outs of photos uploaded to Flickr over a 24 hour period. According to Kessels, the exhibit is supposed to evoke "the feeling of drowning in representations of other peoples' experiences" that's caused by the overload of images being shared online.
