FRANKINCAMERAS-- Sneaky IPhone 6 cover

JUNE 2016   In the "just for studio fun," department...

 I made 2 new FRANKINCAMERAS from patina plates and found objects..These 1/1 constructions are clever disguises for Iphones. and MOMENT lenses ( wide ) .. I use a photo booth app (pocketbooth) and take them to gallery openings and art events.. Who isn't amused by the weird musings of artists left to hammer and invent objects to embellish their own weirdness..

This is SWAMPCAM--#6 , cobbled from a green Kodak folding camera body , c.1920s. It may have been a Girl Scout green edition, which is even more appropriate, as, yes, i admit to that association until i was in high school.. LOVED all that arts and crafts and hands on camp construction stuff.  YES, it is an actual dried gator head, bromeiliads , moss and sea sponges to look like branches and logs..

AND, even now, all that knot trying still comes in handy, as well as the first aid...

I made another, a bit less extreme, for BONNY LHOTKA, as a birthday 2016 gift, which she played with at the P.I.E. conference, Carmel Ca.

 SWAMPCAM #6 and BONNYCAM #5. Only non functional camera parts are used.. Original patina aluminum plates cover a wooden box. There is a space built in to hide the Iphones..
