Tumblr Of The Day: The Camera In The Mirror

MarioSantamaria-03

A few years ago Google launched the Google Art Project, as a way of providing virtual tours of gallery spaces. Now Barcelona-based artist Mario Santamaría has created a tumblr called The Camera In The Mirror where he collects images of the Google camera capturing itself in a mirror.

There’s something unsettling about the camera’s ghostly appearance; the images almost look like stills from a Kubrick film. More images below.

    Kubrick is spot on. Somebody should come up with an elaborate conspiracy theory that ties together Google’s image capture projects with the whole Kubrick-faked-moon-landing idea. Seems like perfect internet fodder.

  • makes me feel all kinds of ways all at once, in awe + creeped out simultaneously. beautiful & eerie documentation. happy this exists.

    Would love to see this translated to a set of isolated motels,hostels,hotels and spaces across different countries.

    Have you seen this? It’s my favorite Google related art project – the images are frequently beautiful, disturbing and surreal. http://9-eyes.com/

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.
