I took 15 photographs of different individuals without giving them any instruction other than to pose for the camera and allowed a one second interval between each shot. I then created ‘Inter-val’, a website that displays all the photographs in a grid. At a first glance, the appearance of the set of images show a tremendous resemblance, which allows our brain to merge them into the recognition of the same person. When hovering over each image, an animated gif plays depicting the slight but now noticeable changes that occurred
in the one second interval. Thus, embedding the concept of sameness and difference through time while the counter at the top right corner of the page continuously counts to one.
An info page reveals the image details within the same grid, highlighting the name of the image and the time in which it was taken. Upon hovering over these boxes, the animated gif re-appears, also depicting the time factor, similarity and difference of each.
