Making photos with a laptop screen  APR 27 2010

This is a photographic print made by briefly exposing photosensitive paper to the light from a laptop screen and then developing the paper. No camera needed.


The creator calls prints like these Laptopograms. Here's the code for the "shutter":

vbetool dpms on ; sleep 2.0; sudo vbetool dpms off

Ideas for further exploration: make prints of screen-specific subjects (desktop, web sites, email inbox, etc.) and hi-res wallet-sized prints using the iPhone.
