The Picture Project: A Million Little Pictures


Thoughts on the disposable camera of the A Million Little Pictures Project by The Art House Co-op. The Art House Co-op is well known for it’s art projects. They blow them out of proportion- recruiting everyone who is willing to join. A fine example of the beauty of cohesiveness of humankind.

This year I decided to participate in the A Million Little Pictures Project. I paid the fee and funnily enough, I received my camera in the mail about two weeks after.

My Theme was Surviving The End Of The World. So I portrayed a story of a crumpled piece of paper roaming about an uninhabited space alone. It is the lone survivor after the supposed end of the world.
But there is always hope. And he finds a friend in the end.

However, this is a review of the camera and the film. Now I have no idea what film is used. All that is said is that it is custom designed especially for this project.

Having developed my pictures, I noticed that the blues and cyan tones appear in beautiful shades. The images are granular and have borderline expired film effects. I loved the effects that I got.

Looking at the negative aspects of the camera: The flash is horrid and there obviously is a lack of focus options and shutter speed preferences. The results are definitely better than I expected. The images taken on cloudy days are just as interesting.

If you want to experiment with it and mark the world with your urine, I definitely recommend this competition! There is a registration fee though. It is worth it.

All hail the Sponge!
