    Garbage camera project

    Today weather is bad. So I made some pinhole cameras. My cameras are made of waste products of civilization, e.g. non-returnable packaging: cans, cartons, soda tumblers and, of course, an original packaging for a digital camera...

    As you can see, this project is about the environment. I will photograph landfills, garbage trucks, waste incinerators. Garbage to garbage, waste to waste...

    But I don't want to be the only one. Waste products of civilization are a global problem, and I am looking for kindred spirits for a global event.

    Let me know what you think about it. It's not "my" project, it's ours.

    Perhaps they should take a couple of your models along on the Plastiki.

    For the 'total art experience' it should be done with discarded film, paper and chemicals.

    Nice addon idea, all film should be outdated

    BTW, I am quite sure I already have an opportunity for an exhibition, some people outside this forum like the project.

    I probably could have been a bit more specific. The "Plastiki" is a sailing catamaran built entirely from recycled materials (the hull is empty plastic, soft drink bottles filled with CO2). Their intent is to sail parts of the Pacific to draw attention to large areas of trash, some 2X the size of Texas!!) out there. I thought a perfect match would be some of your pinhole cams, but I expect they would be difficult to use on a pitching sailboat.

    Have a look at Miroslav Tichy's cameras for inspiration. Not pinhole, but you'll see what I mean.
