Cardboard SLR by Kiel Johnson Can You Make a Camera Out of Cardboard?

This ingenious sculpture of an SLR camera was crafted by California artist Kiel Johnson from nothing more than cardboard, tape, and glue. Johnson’s detailed representations of point-and-shoot, Polaroid and twin-lens cameras have a vintage do-it-yourself sensibility – his work makes us think about the tension between our love affair with sleek gadgets and our longing for things that are handcrafted on a more human scale.

See Johnson’s remarkable work here. Be sure to watch the lighthearted time-lapse video below of Johnson creating a giant cardboard twin-lens camera that can actually take pictures.
