    On a related historical note- I got to visit The Nikkei Internment Centre Museum in New Denver last year. What a great space, and what a great/respectful monument to a shameful chapter in Canadian history. I recommend it to anyone passing through the West Kootenays/Slocan Valley, whether they are of Nikkei/Japanese-Canadian descent, or are just curious about BC history.
    Also, The Langham Theatre in Kaslo was an internment space- I got a tour through it when I showed a film there in November. Sandon, too, was used to intern Nikkei during World War II; a lot of communities here saw Nikkei from the coast “resettled” and interned as possible conspirators or some other lame xenophobic designation through the bulk of the 1940’s.
    Anyhow, not to go off on a rant, but it’s definitely a period in our shared history worth (re)visiting and learning more about.

  • Dear sir,
    Please print your ‘Dear Louis Vuitton’ on a canvas bag and send it to me in Australia.
    It makes me chuckle.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
