Reddit Place (/r/place) – FULL 72h (90fps) TIMELAPSE

Published on April 27, 2022

Thanks to /u/JetBalsa for the Image Archive!

On April Fools’ Day 2017, a social experiment was launched in the form of a subreddit called “place”. It featured a collaborative pixel art canvas, where a user could place a pixel every five minutes (the timer was temporarily ten and twenty minutes for a few hours on April 1).

The timelapse used a Raspberry Pi and the Reddit API to get a BitMap. Many Images are from /u/JetBalsa. The Last few hours are captures by myself.
