Product Description

This kinetic sculpture is a 3D printed love note to the vintage camera.

In today’s world of digital cameras built into every smartphone, it's easy to think that the camera is a simple device that's always been around.

However, long before there was Instagram, cameras were human-powered machines that generated ghostly black and white photographs through a combination of mechanical wizardry and chemistry.

In order to improve the quality of the early photographs, the pioneers of the camera realized the need to control the amount of light entering through the lens.

But how?

By observing how the human eye reacts to different lighting conditions, these inventors developed the ingenious Camera Aperture to mimic the eye's functionality.

Now, thanks to 3D printing, this innovative heritage will never be lost. You can have your own Camera Aperture to hold in your hand and connect back to the golden age of photography!

All of the moving parts on this kinetic sculpture are 3D printed in place, so no assembly is required. Watch the video to see it in action.
