Four Corner Store Upcycles Old Cameras into Cool Urban Designs
Posted By Helen Morgan On October 23, 2012 @ 1:25 pm In Art,Recycled Materials | No Comments
Four Corner Store  recently launched this series of upcycled  cameras and stands — a quirky collection of cameras that have been transformed into camera art installations. The designs, formed from old analog cameras, are created by a range of artists from Asia and the US, who clean up the salvaged items  to build new vintage designs. The end result is a functional piece of art that is at once innovative and nostalgic.
Lead by Singapore-based artist PHU , the Darkroom Army project produces the customized machines ensuring that they are fully functional vintage designs. A particularly fantastic concept from the collaborators is the Darkroom Army, which are variations of the FED-5 Camera. Instead of letting the Ukrainian cameras be left to ruin, the team created these imaginative vintage machines.
