The Blinky is a self-assemble DIY Pinhole lens made from cardboard. Similarly to the Paper Fold Pinhole, the film chamber is kept shut with a rubber band. (Did I say this kit is genius yet?) and the film is wound with a wooden peg.
Interestingly enough, the kit is a love child of two designers countries apart – UK and France. Here is how they introduce the project
“Hej/Hello/Bonjour! We are Liv and Léa.
We are from the UK and France. We met while both on exchange at HDK, Göteborg, studying Design.
We have put a lot of effort in creating Blinky, our first
collaborative project together. It’s been a lot of fun designing a ’
build it yourself ’ camera, and now we both know a little more about how
they work too.
We have drunk a lot of tea in the process and a little wine at points.
Thanks for the shout, Itay.
