Tourist Photographs: Foiled!
Possibly frustrated with rampant tourism around his ‘hood, Berlin-based artist Julius von Bismarck developed a device that manipulates photographs being taken by ‘vandalising’ the subject matter with light. Working much like a portable light projector, Bismarck’s “Image Fulgurator” is comprised of a regular camera, flash control and unit, sensor and a positive-developed picture slide of “graffiti”. The Image Fulgurator fires its own flash when it detects a photograph being taken nearby, flooding the area with a projected image invisible to the naked eye. It’s when the photos are being reviewed after the fact that the vandalism is noticed. Now we just need to get prepared for more paranormal activity reports.
