David Janesko and Adam Donnelly forage for sticks and small objects with a pre-existing hole (for the aperture), building cameras for their landscape shots out of the landscape itself. As much a part of the artistry of their photography as the resulting photograph, these sculpture-like structures are often big enough for one of them to fit inside! They’re currently preparing for a two-week expedition, embarking in the Spring and constructing a total of 9 cameras as they make their way along the Rio Grande River from Texas to Colorado. Watch their short video on Booooooom TV now! And check out the Indiegogo page to help support their project!
Motion-control artist Bruce Shapiro’s “Sisyphus” is an incredible sand drawing machine that creates elaborate patterns using magnets (click here for previous post). While several installations have been set up in countries around the world, Shapiro is now working toward a version people can enjoy in their own homes!
