Blink of an Eye

An Interactive Window Display

Blink of an Eye is an interactive window display centered around the theme of time. The installation flashes your life before your eyes. Your Instagram life.
Text the number your Instagram handle to see your (social) life flash before your eyes. The eye will blink and flash your Instagram photos to give you a glimpse into your past and allow you to relive memories in real-time.

How it Works

the guts and glory

  • Step 1

    Text the number

    By using the Twilio platform, the onlooker texts the specified number their Instagram account (handle)

  • Step 2

    Peek into your Instagram account

    The algorithm then scrapes your instagram account for those lovely pictures you've decided to post

  • Step 3

    Mirror mirror on the wall

    Once the images have been accessed, the system then grabs them and displays them back to the user

  • Step 4

    Blink once if you get it

    The eye will blink before displaying the images to the user, and then blink again once it is done

  • Ta-da!
