A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographers Mick Farrell and Cliff Haynes made this camera out of thousands of drinking straws, and the photos they produce are really interesting and look almost like a pointillist painting. It reminded me of the contemporary photographer we discussed in class who made a digital site that can produce an image that looks like it was taken with a pinhole camera. Both intentionally used creative, technically low-quality photography methods to create interesting images that are less about their actual subject matter or composition than they are about the technique and image quality itself.
