Untitled (I’ve taken too many photos / I’ve never taken a photo) 2012 is a social conceptual project resulted in a spatial photo installation. A guy called Harrison Medina from Bed Stuy, an almost gentrified ghetto in New York, who never made a photo in his life before, selected 75 photos and their sizes out of Kruithof’s ‘automagic picture archive ‘. She found this guy through a street-poster-call. During the selection process she recorded the conversation with his comments on art, photography and society, which can be seen and red on the take away poster, which comes a long with the installation. Viewers could take a mirror to ‘frame their own pictures’. This work could be seen as ‘analogue interactivity’. The work is a psychical and surprising experience, where both spectators as the selector (Harrison) play important roles.
