Camera in parcel tracks journey through postal system

BoingBoing.com reports British artist Tim Knowles put a digital camera inside a cardboard box and rigged it so that it would snap a photo every ten seconds through a small hole in the box. Then he sent the box through the Royal Mail.

It recorded a total of 6994 images and he made a movie with them.
Knowles was given unique access by Royal Mail to produce a series of new postal works according to his Web site.
The site also says this is the second time Royal Mail has collaborated with an artist in order to raise money for its charity partner Help the Hospices.
