    Very disturbing and powerful – yet simple. Love it :)

  • Agreed- eerie but captivating, definitely evokes emotion!

    those look like pictures of two different things. are there two installations?

  • Rachael

    What disturbs me the most is you can’t see her hands… did she create this cacophony of chaos with only her mind??? yes, very powerful!

  • michelle ruby

    is this the same piece? the patterns on the dress are different and the squiggles are bigger on the seconds one. Either way I love it.

    • i believe it is two different installations of the work

    Saw this at the RISD museum in Providence. I thought the little girl was real at first and was scared silly.

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
