Sunday Matinée

I saw something interesting over at designboom: two guys by the names of Mick Farrell and Cliff Haynes have come up with a straw camera.

An analogue device filled with drinking straws. Creating excellent pics, I think. Gives one the feeling of possessing bee – vision, all of a sudden (I am aware, bees have a quite different view than this, but I still like the thought).

I love that approach – experimenting with simple things, getting some amazing results.

  1. Do you remember Lite Brite? A lightboard with colored pegs that you plugged into the holes to make art? That’s what these remind me of, super-sophisticated Lite Brites. Though I like the idea that it’s how bees see things, a very creative observation. 🙂
