Make yourself a camera!!

The design geniuses at FWIS have created a series of Pinhole Cameras for World Pinhole Camera Day. The greatest part is that the cameras are available at Corbis as downloadable PDF’s – so you just print them off your printer, and assemble your very own, functioning, pinhole camera!!!

Did I mention they look stunning?

Take a look at the four other cameras after the jump!

Go make yourself a camera!

I found this over at the amazing Mint blog.

    i’m all for crafts that are useful and thought to myself, maybe i’ll try this out….and then i went to the site. i don’t think i can do it. will you be making one? because really, how could you tell us to and then not make one yourself? so i’d like to see some pics of it on here soon. i’ll need some inspiration. 🙂

    Yeah, Jeff. Take pictures using the pinhole camera you build of a mass manufactured digital camera

    what does that even mean?

    bec, i think that first one with the explosions is the hardest one to make – i’ll take a look at the pdf’s but from what i can see this other little red guy is alot simpler

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
