The components that were coordinating all the access passwords , the pictures and the web server weaved a complex programming system. In first place we created an algorithm to generate a million of aleatory passwords that later on, were printed in the tickets of the museums.

We developed a program in Processing(open source graphical programming environment) that managed the user experience. That means that was checking all the passwords of the users with the data base, the application’s interactivity, the activation and the photograph editing made with the webcam, the coordination with the printer and uploading tasks to the web.

Hard job of programming that was solved really good allowing a perfect and fluid running during the six month of the exhibition.
