Wonder Kept: Souvenirs of the Unexpected; aka Tricky Photobooth

2006. The booth is presented in semi-public spaces as a typical photobooth holding no indication of it’s unique qualities. Users enter the booth, pose for 2 shots & exit as usual. During the developing process, the photos are “analyzed” & customized with forecasts consisting of patterns, symbols & messages. On special occasions a guest writer sits hidden within the booth to make particularly special customized portraits.

Booth Goals:
- Instill wonder in the daily routine
- Surprise & delight its audience
- Encourage an openness to play & create social relation through confrontation of the unexpected
- Encourage patience & optimism in unexpected & vulnerable circumstances
