Straw Camera

Artists Mick Farrell and Cliff Haynes teamed up to build what could quite possibly be the world's first and only "Straw Camera." This analog machine creates fragmented images, as the camera box itself is filled with 32,000 drinking straws. To be more specific, rather than produce an image from a single point perspective, this camera provides a multi-point perspective from an array, with each individual straw collecting light and recording it onto photosensitive material.

Blue Lightning Space

Astronaut Andreas Mogensen was floating 250-miles above the surface of Earth when he captured a mysterious blue light, or what looks like upside-down lightning. They're officially called "blue jets," and its color is believed to be due to a set of blue and near-ultraviolet emission lines from neutral and ionized molecular nitrogen. In addition, whereas red sprites tend to be associated with significant lightning strikes, blue jets do not appear to be directly triggered by lightning (they do, however, appear to relate to strong hail activity in thunderstorms).

Canon's PowerShot SX610 HS is a great camera, but in the hands of artist Michael Paul Smith, it becomes a magical tool. He's spent the past 28-years creating Elgin Park, and it's unlike any other city you've seen, as he takes miniature models, diorama sets and photographs them using forced perspective to create the historical scenes. Being a professional model maker by trade, his models are intricate enough to be photographed up-close without issue. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.
