Tangible digital pictures

old film roll

It’s no doubt that we live in a digital world.  The old days of buying rolls of film to later chemically developed have been replaced with compact flash storage and online photo galleries. Most of these things have be wonderful achievements for everyone. I still remember the days of being limited to 12-24 pictures per roll of film. The film also had to be the correct ISO for the expected light conditions for best results.

Today my digital camera can take over 1,600 pictures on a single CF card. I don’t need to worry if I bought the right type of film or wait for it to be developed.  However, if you are anything like me, you have vast collection of pictures taking up space on your hard drive.

But sometimes the digital world has unexpected negative impact on our lives. Because any physical pictures must be printed out, I find that less and less of them actually make it into frames. Ironically, I have thousands and thousands of digital pictures but hardly and physical copies of my work.

Improving the picture frame might just be what is needed to take the digital pictures and turn them into tangible goods. By making a unique frame, the pictures can become more than a image on paper. They can blend over and onto the frame making the entire object a unique item.

I have been toying with different ideas for unique frames with different themes. Here are a few examples that I’ve started.
