Over the last few months myself and 2 friends (Tom Mattey and George Tomlinson) have been chatting in various pubs about a photo booth that looks like an elevator, sounds like an elevator and acts like an elevator and produces a photographic souvenir of that experience . At the same time i had been asked to produce an installation for the moniker art fair by Urban Nation. The theme was Brexit and synergy between the themes and object seemed too close to ignore.
The LIFT is a totally new photo booth experience! Appearing like an elevator in the corner of your room…The lift door opens to reveal a life like lift interior, muzak playing. On entering the door slides shut and a lift themed touch screen interface guides you through 4 poses. The last photograph is timed to be taken at the exact moment the floor drops catching all inside in that moment of surprise.
A bonkers new way of capturing the moment. Half ride, half souvenir. An immer- sive journey, a snap of surprise. From entry to exit, it looks like a lift, acts like a lift and plays on your expectations of a lift. Close the door choose your floor, doesn’t matter what you choose we are all getting down!
