In a darkroom, an iPhone connected to the laptop over WiFi is placed into an enlarger. A patch written in Max/MSP selects pixels on the iPhone to be illuminated for a specified duration. This is captured on black and white photo paper. The selection of pixels is algorithmic making each image unique.
