Need an office divider but you're just tired of constructing or placing a lame, plain wall? The designers at Npire decided to use Lego bricks to construct a massive 9-foot wall. Check out the pics after the jump.
Hamburg-based agency Npire came up with this idea when they needed to separate their kitchen from the main work area. So instead of of just building a regular wall, they decided to make it more fun, quirky, and analogue! They bought buckets and buckets of Lego bricks and spent about a year constructing this wall piece-by-piece. They used up about 55,000 Lego bricks and said it cost them €2,500. Was it worth it? I’d say hell yeah!
A Lego wall is sort of similar to our very own LomoWall(s), in analogue and aesthetic senses. I usually look at it as an 8-bit LomoWall or a low-res LomoWall. I’ve been wanting to have my own Lego photo-wall in my room for ages. I just wish I could save enough, just look at how many buckets of bricks it cost to build that wall. What about you? Do you have something similar in your home or workplace? What do you think?
It's really amazing how simple plastic bricks can be assembled to create or, in this case, imitate works of art. Have a look at Veronica Watson's rendering of a famous Picasso painting using Legos after the cut!
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
Like a quick-changing siren, a sunset has fantastic showmanship. It may come in a costume of luminous yellow one day, and a daring paint canvas the next. And of its various looks, five have been getting the loudest applause from all over the community.
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
Sprocket Love: The Sprocket Rocket is the world’s first wide-angle camera dedicated to sprockets. It shoots 18 panoramas on a standard 35mm roll and exposes the whole width of film including sprocket holes. Use its dual winding knobs for easy multiple exposures and generate perfect nighttime shots with the bulb setting.

Duncan Frazier and Stephen McGuigan are focused on creating niche technology that inspires. Founders of Bitbanger Labs, a Brooklyn-based outlet for their ideas, the two friends developed a revolutionary light painting device — Pixelstick. We talked to them to find out more about their work and about this unique and beautiful way to take photos!
