Tsui Kuang-Yu

“Bowling Alley in London” by artist Tsui Kuang-Yu. I had seen this work a long time ago and forgotten the artist, but thanks to the help of Roberto Pérez (via the Booooooom Tumblr) I was able to track down the video again and upload it to Youtube.

  • I was surprised at how quickly they assess the threat of the ball, considering how close pigeons generally let you walk by. Excellent concept, thanks for tracking this down & sharing!

    stupid. leave these pigeons alone!

  • perfect game

    This guy is an asshole. Stupid, unimaginative concept, leave the fucking pigeons alone.

      Hi Chris, I was the assistant on the London part of that whole video series. You’ll be glad to know that the amazing thing about pigeons, also about birds, is that they fly away.

      The work is part of a series of different gestures and it makes more sense when you see the whole thing: watch from about 3mins in in the second video to see clips of the rest.

      Anyway, the only living thing harmed during the making of this video was me and my frigging shins, cos I was the one who had to run off and stop the ball.

    Chris, watch the second video and call him “unimaginative” again. he may not give a shit about what people think (bowling pigeons or golfing in a city park) but what good artist ever thought twice about an instinctive idea?

    This guy is great, a lot of the second video is filmed in Amsterdam, made me miss the city! The sprinkler jacket is great!!

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.
