Open Source Image stacking for experimental photography
+ About this project
Collapsus is an open source program created for the exploration of chronophotography and image stacking in digital
The program works by taking all photographs in a selected folder and using various algorithms of your choice to combine into a single image.
With this software you can compress time and reveal movement. You can average images. You can explore abstraction and chance operations. You can also export sequences to create animations.
Experiment and publish your results here.
From June 9th until September 16th, 2012, 'Featured Images' will be exhibited on a monitor in Kassel, Germany at dOCUMENTA(13). The images will appear with a title, and credit.
This project was commissioned and produced by dOCUMENTA(13).
