RiversProject::Delaware (2009)

Rivers Project: Delaware, is a portrait of the Delaware river through the relationships that shape our social, commercial, political, natural and aesthetic experience. A grid of multiple photos collage a visual experience of the Delaware River. The grid is created using the Flickr API and phpFlickr, a PHP wrapper of Flickr (scraping technology) for all photos that are labeled “Delaware” and showing them 12 photos at a time and changing every 5 seconds. Flickr allows you to order your search result by “interestingness” which is based on viewers clicking that they like a photo. The results are in descending order of interestingness, which gives much better results than random order.

Thousands of pictures cycle throughout the exhibition.
