This is what one day of Flickr uploads -- over a million photos -- looks like printed out and piled all over the floor of an art gallery. It's...a mess. If this were my bedroom growing up there is ZERO CHANCE I would have gotten dessert with dinner. Some pretentious bullshit:

Their content mingles public and private, with the very personal being openly and unselfconsciously displayed. By printing all the images uploaded in a 24-hour period, I visualize the feeling of drowning in representations of other peoples' experiences."
Not gonna lie, I didn't really get the whole "visualization of drowning in representations of other peoples' experiences" thing. What I DID get was a giant f***ing waste of photo paper. Smooth move, Erik. Those could've been nudes!
