A Bigger Boat

A Bigger Boat was an installation done at Rainmaker Residency in NW Portland for the month of January 2017.  The piece was a Jaws inspired animated gif photo booth.

I created a cardboard shark and the back of a boat with bench as well as a camera box with Raspberry Pi Microcontroller, screen, push button, and LEDs for user feedback. Props were created out of cardboard and included a bowie knife and a bucket of chum. The images were uploaded to Tumblr. You can see the collection of them here. Viewers were presented with business cards, complete with a UPC code and url to retrieve their images.
