Erik Kessels


24hrs in Photos

Erik Kessels is a non-conformist advertising executive heading up an important Dutch agency. He is above all recognised by the public as a collector, a successful publisher and exhibition curator. The installation 24hrs in Photos is presented as a mountain of photographs amassed in bulk. This device randomly materialises the number of files downloaded in a single day and posted on Flickr, a website for sharing photos. Some 350,000 prints are within easy reach of visitors. By taking one of these photos away with them, the festival goers are made aware of the infinite qualitative diversity of what is downloaded.
