Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On our last day in Israel we had a tour of the newly opened Herta and Paul Amir Building at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was designed by architecture firm Preston Scott Cohen, and it is astonishing.

We were given our tour while the gallery was closed (star treatment!) so there were a few people cleaning and I thought it was hilarious that this one guy rested his broom right on the sculpture! (I hope this doesn’t get him in any trouble, he was doing a great job!)

Anyways, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a must-see if you ever get the chance to go to Israel!

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!
