Massive Mural in Cairo Stretches Across Over 50 Buildings

el-seed10

Tunisian-French artist eL Seed’s incredible art piece in Cairo, Egypt incorporates over 50 buildings in a neighbourhood that houses the city’s garbage collectors. Entirely self-funded, the mural features Arabic calligraphy that translates to “If one wants to see the light of the sun, he must wipe his eyes.”

Due to the massive scale the whole thing is only visible from a hill at the district’s edge. The area was specifically chosen to avoid catching the attention of local officials, and the artist and his friends were able to complete the entire work without being arrested or harassed. Check out more images below!

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.
