Resonate Festival: Niklas Roy

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Niklas Roy makes the kind of things we were promised the year 2000 would bring – like a pen that turns your TV into a synthesizer or a dance party in a box. For Resonate, the Berlin-based badass gets stuck into a lunchtime workshop he’s calling “Electronic Instant Photo Safari”. The Electronic Instant Camera is essentially a polaroid camera that makes a receipt of your face – Niklas snaps a one-off digital portrait that’s then printed onto thermal receipt paper. The logistics are confounding but the results are oh-so-satisfying – yet another brilliant concept from this self-proclaimed “inventor of useless things.”
