On truth

“The human brain evidently operates on some variation of the famous principle enunciated in ‘The Hunting of the Snark’: ‘What I tell you three times is true.'”

– Norbert Weiner, from Cybernetics

The Image Fulgurator

Mao - The Image Fulgurator

Mao via the Image Fulgurator.

Julius von Bismarck’s ‘Image Fulgurator’ projects stealth images into the photographs of strangers, while keeping those images invisible to human eyes.

How Fulgurator works

How Fulgurator works.

The device has a slave unit on top which is triggered when it sees a flash fire. This triggers his own flash, which fires through the back of the camera, through a film slide containing his slogan and then on and out through the lens at the front. This works because a camera is pretty much a projector in reverse. And because the light-graffiti is fired at the exact same moment the unsuspecting victim takes a picture, it ends up in their photograph and paranoid mind ramblings result.
