Who wants a giant Brownie?
We’re wishing local photographer and OSU lecturer Stephen Tackacs congrats on his set-up at Ingenuity Cleveland this weekend. If you look closely, you’ll recognize one of our laser-cut mechanical iris units at the shutter for this human-sizes Kodak Brownie replica.
Those, shiny leather letters and circles? Also laser cut right here at the shop–taking the decades-old font from the camera face and blowing it up 17.5-times with precision.
Stephen is one of our 400 W. Rich & STEAM Factory friends. YOU can catch this giant piece of awesome here in Columbus at the 2013 Mini Maker Faire coming up soon–October 13th, noon-6pm at COSI.
Press Release copied below:
