V&A Village Fete Photobooth

Fibre Design (2003)


Ever wondered what happens inside a photobooth after your picture is taken? Well, Fibre’s version was a little different than most. And the results probably wouldn’t be considered “passport approved”. The designers built the life-size booth for the annual V&A Village Fete in which creatives are invited to entertain the public with their take on traditional stalls. From the front everything looked normal (although perhaps a little lo-fi) whilst around the back cheeky Fibre were using their creative license (no: 467578423) to make various distortions to the portraits. As well as winning the Best in Show cup and rosette, Fibre’s booth was one of the most popular – it’s amazing how many people will queue up just to be humiliated.

See all the photostrips.

This project was commissioned for the V&A by Scarlet Projects.

Thanks to David from Fibre Design for telling us about his project.
