Corbis Readymech cameras

Peyote pinhole camera
For those of you who are fans of both old-fashioned camera techniques and origami, Corbis have created a website that might have just the thing for you.
The website has a number of camera designs that can be downloaded as pdfs and then printed off, with full instructions how to turn them into the workable pinhole cameras. Here is a selection of the designs, which were created by Fwis design studio especially for Corbis – we think they’re rather nice. Visit corbis.com/readycam to join in the fun.

An independent Eye

Last year Tony Chambers went from creative director to editor-in-chief at Wallpaper*, but now art director Simon Esterson’s gone one better and is the new co-proprietor of design magazine Eye, after a decision by Haymarket to release the magazine to its editor, John L Walters.
Eye will now be managed through new company Eye Magazine Ltd, established by Walters, Esterson and Hannah Tyson (business director at Esterson Associates and now managing director of Eye), and will be run out of offices adjacent to Esterson’s studio in Hoxton.

Blek le Rat: The New Banksy?

Ha – only joking. While Banksy is a relative newcomer to the graffiti scene, Blek le Rat has been stencilling, pasting and daubing his way around the world for nearly thirty years. But the perception of Banksy as the pioneer of street art is certainly the one favoured by the media and the art world. As a result, Banksy’s artistic reputation – no doubt helped by his anonymity – has been elevated to near mythical status. While Blek’s reputation, at least beyond the world of street art, is far less well known, a new book of his work looks certain to bring his art to a wider audience and throw up a few more questions on just how influential he’s been.
