Drawing Machines!

This is a copy of a post currently on the Photo Blog. Thought the drawers over here would dig it:

The artwork of Trevor and Ryan Oakes—identical twins who use drawing to investigate vision and sometimes mimic the results of a camera obscura. The Oakes produce their drawings on curved paper, because the curved surface mimics they way light enters the eye.

The video won’t embed, so watch it here.

The video references this iconic image, Edward Steichen’s, The Flatiron Building, (1905)
