The Matrix

Concluding my series on Kontinuum today, here's one more look at the main station. I have a good number of shots from other visits to this show filed away in archives for potential use for theme days, so odds are you may see some of them down the line.


The last part of the exhibit is of course the wall where you can scan your card and have your digital self appear. When the images dissolve after thirty seconds or so, it feels like watching your Matrix counterpart vanish. 


Here I am, just about to dissolve into the digital void.


The card, which basically is the size of a bookmark, could also be used to download your image into a gif or jpg from the website itself, with the resulting image watermarked with the event's name. This is one of me from another visit-  I could have used one of these for that photographing the photographer theme day. I hope you've enjoyed these Kontinuum posts.

  3. I notice all previous commenters have used the word, "cool." I dunno. When one of your selves dissolves into another of your selves in some underground tunnel bathed in blue light, the word that comes to my mind is "Help!" and "eerie"! I guess you had to be there! :))
