Pop-up book turns into fully-functional camera
Artist and designer Kelli Anderson’s new creation is quite exquisite: a book-camera. And if you’re thinking it’s just book that can pair up with an iPhone to take digital photos and post them to Instagram, you’re way off. Her new project consists of a pop-up book that turns into a fully functional pinhole camera.
Pinhole photography is an image capturing technology that emerged in the early 1800’s, which uses simple principles of physics to record images. The term pinhole is just an allusion to the little hole in front of the camera obscura to capture light.
