    When i showed this to my older brother (which is a teacher) he said he saw these things before from other kids with autism. And then he showed me the extreme Stephen Wiltshire, this video is a must see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8YXZTlwTAU

    Artwork by him should be auctioned and the money raised could go to an Autism charity o.O

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!
