Photo Exhibition to Feature All Possible Photos
Talk about a long-term photography project...
A computer software designer and photographer has designed a program that will eventually create every image possible.
The exhibition, called the “Every Possible Photograph” project, works because in any image there are only a finite number of combination of pixels possible. To limit the number of possibilities artist Jeffery Thomson has chosen to use only black and white images set to a 15 by 10 pixel size.
Even at a creation rate of 300 images per second, you’ll have to wait a little bit for the final product--46,138,562,195,008,110,600,774,753,760,087,749,172,181,189,607,929,628,058,548,517,099,604,563,033,706,075 years to be exact.
That might be a bit too long given the sun is expected to last only another five years.
