The Supersense project is the brainchild of Impossible Project founder Florian Kaps, who said he wanted to make 20x24in Polaroid photographs available worldwide.
‘At the click of a mouse, everybody can now expose personal, digital images with the legendary 20×24 camera,’ the company said of the service, which costs €250 for a single 20×24 ‘online exposure’.
‘Customers simply send their digital photographs to Supersense, where one of the seven worldwide-available 20×24 camera giants is located.
‘Through a hand-buil[t] tool invented by Henny Waanders – a former Polaroid camera developer – Supersense 20×24 experts expose digital images from an iPad Mini’s retina display, through the 20×24 camera onto 20×24 film.’
The Impossible Project stresses this is not a digital printing service, ‘but a unique analogue exposure-service on instant film’.
It added: The results depend on a highly complex chemical reaction, being neither predictable nor reproducible’.
The 20x24in photos are despatched in an ‘art-edition roll’ from the Impossible Project’s base in Vienna, Austria.
Customers can choose, by appointment, to watch the transformation of their photos via a livestream.
Smaller, 8x10in exposures are available, priced €30 each.
