Wayne Belger's HIV Camera

Pinholes are easy to make but the buck doesn't stop there. You can turn it into a work of art, just like Wayne Belger's numerous pieces, including the Untouchable (HIV Camera).

While one can make simple pinholes out of matchboxes, sardine cans, and construction paper, you can also make elaborate ones Wayne Belger’s pinhole projects. In this particular piece, he created a large format 4×5 pinhole camera made from Aluminium, Copper, Titanium, Acrylic and HIV positive blood. The blood pumps through the camera then in front of the pinhole and becomes a #25 red filter. Dubbed “Untouchable”, this piece certainly raises eyebrows and maybe a few nods of appreciation. Thoughts?

    More like an eccentric piece, not ot mention totally uneccesary. And how'd you get hold of HIV positive blood??
