  • I really like the contrast between the house and the interior structure of the hanger..

  • joey

    i kinda wish the skull wasn’t there… it’s beautiful anyhow.

  • lapetitefaon

    god, I want to see this in person! / see photos of the inside of the house? I love the skull!

  • I hate to be ‘THAT’ guy, but the house was built single handedly in two months by Mr. Brent Kerr, Kid Zoom just painted it.

  • Ruth

    To be fair there was a construction team of over 10 people who worked on it. Including builders, the architect, carpenters, art designers, scenic artists and volunteers.
    The entire project had a team of over 25 people work on it.

  • I can’t wait to see what this kid does in the future. His work at Opera Gallery in NYC was amazing.

  • Bone78

    amazing!

  • JeffyP

    I was there for this, it was incredible.

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.
