  • Jerrrrrry

    photograph an honest politician

  • Here’s mine:

    Screen every Stanley Kubrick movie in chronological order at a speed of one frame per hour. All Kubrick’s movies together total 1585 minutes, so it would take roughly 260 years to complete this project.

    • you know whats funny is Douglas Gordon had work at the Vancouver Art Gallery and one piece was Hitchcock’s Psycho screened at I believe 1 frame per minute? (something like that) totally undermining the tension

  • I had a project like that…
    Wanted to put human baby in a glass box to create un cubic dwarf when he grows up, same principle as a bonzai kitten, but it must be against the law…and scientifically impossible too

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!
