Kelli Anderson has been searching for the right sequence of cuts and folds to turn a piece of paper into a camera. Specifically, she wanted to make a working camera within an educational pop-up book—one that connects the dots between design and science / structure and function. The final book explains—and actively demonstrates—how a structure as humble as a folded piece of paper can tap into the intrinsic properties of light to produce a photograph.

As far as 1800’s tech goes, pinhole photography is an great example of material acting as more than the sum of its parts. The results achieved by such humble means is a feat of true cosmic piggybacking—showing that objects we make (even from the most lo-fi materials) can be structured to tap into impressive forces at play in our world.
