Instagram sets up at Parc Vallès
The best-known photography social network in the world now has its own space in the park
Perhaps it sounds strange to you that a mobile application has found a space at a shopping mall. But, at Parc Vallès, we wanted to take advantage of the prominence of this social network, and give it a corner on the premises.
It takes the form of a machine, which looks like the Instagram logo and which lets you instantly print Polaroid photos from images on the social network. This service is open to all members of the public and has the added advantage that we’re already used to this social network. So, besides being able to see your photo on your mobile, now you can get your hands on a physical copy for just €1.
You’ll find the machine outside New Park Bowling. On top of this, it’ll let you print photographs from any profile (as long as it isn’t private). This way, you can surprise your friends and family with a Polaroid of a photo they’ve posted on Instagram.
With this new invention, Instagram is seeking to recover the tradition of keeping our photos in analogue format, a habit that started to disappear with the emergence of new technologies. Park Vallès has signed up to this initiative.
