Artist and comedian Guy Madjar uses photoshop to include himself in all the films nominated for Best Picture this year. See more subtly (and not-so-subtly) altered movie posters below!
Designer Moisés Hernández strikes a fine balance between man and machine with this series of perfectly shaped, machine-milled objects hand-painted or, rather, hand-dipped in coloured water to create layering that resembles the plumage of birds. Check out more “Immersed Birds” below.
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!
Analog-centric photography company ars-imago has developed a handy little device that basically works like a portable darkroom!

See more images and check out a short video demonstration below!
