Instagram hashtag activates live printing of photos

On the occasion of the 2016 Long Night of Museums, Garamantis developed an application for C/O Berlin that prints Instagram photos taken during the event, on the spot and immediately upon upload, if they have a defined hashtag (e. g. #Incoberlin). The photographs were printed using a template designed to resemble polaroids. Visitors could pick up their photos from the C/O Berlin counter at once, which made the installation very popular with them. Consequently, this installation has left many traces, both digital and analog, beyond the actual event.
