Digital Silhouette Photo Booth (proposal)

Taking inspiration from pre-photography and silhouette making of the late 1700s and early 1800s, I would like to fabricate a digital ‘photo booth’ that will make ‘selfie shades’ (see image below left). If you would like to collaborate, please get in touch info[at]
