  • these are amazing.

  • shannon

    beautiful.

  • garrett

    horsays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • she really has got some crazy skills. to fit all that together is possibly impossible

  • Flora

    trop beau!

  • Jerrrrrry

    also see Deborah Butterfield — very similiar

  • I also immediately thought of Deborah Butterfield who makes life sized hose sculptures out of driftwood and then casts them in bronze.

    • yah the Butterfield connection is… strange. for what it’s worth, i think Butterfield’s abstract work is more interesting, but even her straightforward horse-sculptures blow these out of the water.

  • beautiful anatomy on these pieces!!! brings troya back to memory :)

  • All sculptors should learn from Heather. Hats off

  • es

    So beautiful!

  • Michael

    Sorry guys, but I prefer Heather’s work. It’s more dynamic and indeed less abstract. Nonetheless, both are good.

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!
