Philosophy of Piece
Even though memories are never an exact representation of the past they are dynamic and always changing fascinating journeys. We read in articles that we have to feel present, live in the moment. It often appears that living in the moment is the most difficult thing to do as someone may have stronger sentimental longings or wistful affections for the past.

As time passes our perception of past changes, becomes more beautiful, significantly powerful, gains a magical appearance. These images as framed art pieces decorate walls of our consciousness filling our lives with bittersweet emotions as we replay these meaningful moments in our minds. These excessively sentimental feelings typically make us more optimistic and inspired about the future. Nostalgia triggers something in the brain to create the illusion of a time travel. Our nostalgic reflections buffer our existential experiences as we willingly book a trip through time and our pleasurable memories seem to always meet us there.

This photo booth is a vintage photo kiosk that contains interactive self-operated displays with vintage cameras and film processors. The purpose is to create a unique environment with sentimental longing for the past by surrounding a person with vintage objects, decorative pieces, sounds and smells from a specific time period. The displays are designed to create an emotional drift that has broadened to the notion of longing for or missing aspects of a unique experience from the past.

Each entrance will have stylized spaces according to the time period (1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s).

For instance, 50s timeframe will have interactive vintage objects such as a phonograph, rotary telephone, books and newspapers, calendars, vintage garment etc. 60s timeframe display will have retro tv, radios, calculators, tape cassettes, record players, video camera, as well as hippie fashion clothing items, dry flowers, smell of cannabis; books, posters, postcards promoting love, peace, psychedelic drugs.
