We love these camera paper sculptures by Seoul-based artist Lee Jihee

We love these camera paper sculptures by Seoul-based artist Lee Jihee. Lee is interested in how the technology of the time effected the design of the camera. He uses colourful paper to accentuate the form.

Lee Jihee’s practice centers around an investigation of modern day technology and a longing for the past.

‘As anyone can take a picture with their mobile phone in this era, they feel the nostalgia for the film camera,’

Lee Jihee describes,

‘Contax, Rolleiflex, and Leica have a large body since they need to contain the film, and also have to be installed for a camera lens. The weighty body and lenses gives the device a huge impression. The classical camera — which is the integration of the optical technology and the industrial design of the time — is coloured to give it liveliness.’
