one attached to a camera on a balcony overlooking the gallery space, next.

1 The mask is created by subtracting the new image from the initial image, and then thresholding the result. Next.

When it finds a new mask the Pi downloads and prints the image, next.

The mask is then uploaded to Dropbox, next.

creating a relatively accurate snapshot of the gallery at that moment.2,3 Next.

and another connected to a thermal receipt printer located more centrally in the gallery. Next.

?Where utilizes two Raspberry Pi Zero Ws, next.

2 Both the camera and printer scripts were written in Python. Next.

Every thirty seconds, the camera takes a photo of the gallery and compares it to an initial image of the space. Next.

highlighting the discrepancies between the two photos. Next.

where the Pi attached to the printer periodically checks to see if a new image has been uploaded. Next.
