Standard resolution for a digital camera these days is about eight megapixels. And each one of those eight million pixels has the potential to be thousands or even millions of different colors. […] By raising the number of available colors to the eight-millionth power, you can come up with the total number of different photographs that could possibly ever exist.
Which is just what artist Jeff Thompson of Lincoln, Nebraska is trying to do. He has created an installation titled “Every Possible Photograph” that, well, is on pace to display every possible photograph that could be taken.
