Product designer Kevin LCK created this Leica M3 camera out of paper cardboard:

'Ordinary Behavior' is a project about the unhealthy relationship between human and technology in an everyday context. I have created a set of five illustrative objects as the tools of revealing the absurd situations. They are all made of paper cardboard and appear to be everyday electronic appliances and devices that can be found in our domestic environment, however, their interiors are modified into miniaturized human scaled space. I seeked to detach the audience from the real world temporarily, provide them with a space to rethink and reconsider the way we behave and think about the relationship between ourselves, objects and environment with technology in a more conscious way.

    Now, I’d believe it if this piece of art is worth $1,000,000. :-) A very respectful and appropriately critical tribute.

        Really? Must… resist…

        Actually, I already have a paper M3 with Summarit 50/1.5 I made. It was to get a sense of its size, compared to other options, before I bought one to try. Just a single piece of copy paper, and no ironic social commentary. I used plastic wrap for the lens. :-)

    Actually, what’s really kind of funny is that the somewhat squared off curves of the body shape make it look rather like a vintage Nikon rangefinder body, at least at first glance.
    Looks like you may get some light leaks through the (non-existent) back door though:-)

    Something to think about…somewhere on the planet, there’s now an idiot teenager thinking he can make an assault-rifle out of cardboard…

    …and somebody just dropped a bag of rice in china…

    Nothing but negativity left on this board. I am leaving for good.
