Incredible Cardboard Cameras by Kiel Johnson
Posted By Moe Beitiks On September 13, 2010 @ 6:37 pm In Art,Recycled Materials | 3 Comments
Artist Kiel Johnson  has used common cardboard  to meticulously re-create an incredible collection of old-school cameras — from the Instamatic to the Polaroid to the Hi-8. Johnson’s obsession with paper  is infectious — it’s obvious in the way he constructs every button and lens notch. Read on to learn more about Johnson’s incredible analog tribute to great cameras of the past!
That Johnson’s father was a printer speaks something of his obsession with paper. This tie is especially evident in his much-publicized show Publish or Perish  at the Moore Gallery  a few years back. The exhibition featured a paper-made printing press in addition to a hand-made and fully operational cardboard  camera! Other carefully crafted tributes included cassette tapes, boom boxes, and luggage. We love to showcase that sort  of craftiness  here at Inhabitat.
