We think that making your own gadgets is great. It’s even better when they’re made from things like skulls. Take Wayne Martin Belger, an artist whose work we’ve just recently come across. This man makes some gorgeous pinhole cameras, like the “Third Eye” you see on the picture. And, not only do they look cool, they’re completely functional:
All the cameras are machined out of 6061 (aircraft quality) aluminum with tolerances kept within 1000th of an inch to ensure the cameras will be completely light tight and function smoothly.
They all have stainless steel tripod mounts, adjustable focal lengths (with the exception of the Bee camera) and will take a standard 4×5 Polaroid back. Other parts can range from stainless steel surgical tools, rusty parts from abandoned mining camps in the Mojave and Death Valley Deserts, to insects, plants, carved bone, and even a real human heart in the back of one of the camera?s pressure plates.
We’re not sure whether his cameras are for sale, though if they are, expect them to be priced as a unique work of art.
