A camera lens made from 32000 drinking straws

Artists Mick Farrell and Cliff Hayne have worked together to create a camera lens made from 32000 drinking straws, which produce an effect similar to what you would expect a bee sees. The specs of the lens are actually quite good too:

Haynes explains that the straws have a ‘raw’ f stop, where a 254mm long, 22mm wide straw gives an aperture of about f127, which they used as a starting point for exposure. each straw has its own density and hue, and the analogue creation gives a straight indexical rendering of whatever is placed directly in front of it.
