Dries Depoorter built a project that captures the moment that an Instagram photo was taken and posts the results:
How does this work?
- Recorded a selection of open cameras for weeks.
- Scraped all Instagram photos tagged with the locations of the open cameras.
- Software compares the Instagram with the recorded footage.
Brilliant, fascinating, and creepy all at once. Which is, I think, what Depoorter was going for.
