I made a stereo pinhole camera

Today Kristen helped me make a stereo pinhole camera from a kit I bought in Japan in 2009. I can't wait to use it (although I will have to wait - the weather today is not nice). Slideshow above of the work in progress, featuring a special appearance by our cat Cooper.

The camera has two settings, either panorama, which will expose one shot across two full 35 mm frames via the central lens, or stereo, which exposes two shots at the same time side by side using the two lenses on the left and right. When you view the resulting prints with the stereo viewer (which you also build from the kit) they are sort of 3D. Hehe. So cute.

It's definitely the sturdiest pinhole camera in my collection now because it is made from plastic. It also has a more stable and clever shutter release. I am hopeful this will take really great shots!

I'll post as soon as I have something to show.

New Year Projects

My friends and I agree that 2011 is the year of doing. Taking everything we do further. Pushing ourselves to take risks and seek out new opportunities.

So, no time like the present to post a little update on my goals and projects for 2011!

Thus far I have completed a logo design commission for a Melbourne-based artist run record label and applied for an artist residency in Dayton, Ohio.

This year I really want to participate in an overseas artist residency to further my professional practice. I am also applying for a residency in Singapore.

My list of things to do has so many applications on it - applications for exhibitions, art prizes, residencies and grants. I think I am getting better at writing these things!

And most importantly I want to complete a new body of work! I have a fairly good idea of what I am going to do, and am going to get started today.

Now in fact!
