  • Adam

    those are hauntingly gorgeous

  • Magda

    These are sweet. Although I can imagine the creepiness of walking into a gallery with only floating blonde heads. Still would love to see them irl!

  • Ami

    Your right, there is a sense of creepiness and captivating at the same time. I like the simplistic display in the gallery, they look great. すごい。

  • these are gorgeous.. he said wood

  • Why are they all looking at me?

  • Rain

    These are incredible. I have such high respect for woodcarvers capable of creating something like this. There was a piece at the Seattle Art Museum that has been taken out but it was a carving of a head wrapped in fabric and it was SO GOOD. I feel bad because I totally forget the artists name but it actually looked like fabric until you got up close to it.

  • Wooooow, beautiful!

  • John

    That’s some of the very best sculpture I’ve seen these days!

  • Wow, seriously remarkable work. Thanks for sharing this, even if I do feel seriously inferior after looking at these.

  • Austin

    those are beautiful

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!
