$2 ASCII Portrait Studio (and ASCII awareness centre)
A collaborative piece by Kevin Bouton-Scott and Jim Ricks
AHA Festival, Santa Fe, New Mexico
September 13, 2014

Over the course of the day our 'photo conceptual lemonade stand' provided the public with information about ASCII art, its history and offered letter sized ASCII portraits for $2. We worked (technologically) backwards from an iPhone to the anachronistic pre-pixel mode of image display.
