Looking through #viewfindersofthepast with @littlecoal
For more perspective-bending photos from vintage camera owners around the world, browse the #viewfindersofthepast hashtag. To see more of Eric’s life in Ohio through the lens of his Bosley, follow @littlecoal on Instagram.
When Ohio schoolteacher and Instagrammer Eric Ward (@littlecoal) received an old film camera that had belonged to his wife’s grandfather, the connection was instantaneous. “I immediately fell in love with the glass and the unique feel you get looking down through a viewfinder of that age,” he says. “I imagined all that he had seen through the same viewfinder and wanted to find a way to continue what he had started.”
Eric continues that story on Instagram with his camera, a Bolsey Model C Twin Lens Reflex from the 1950s with a top-down viewfinder. By taking a photo from above with his phone, Eric discovered he could capture two subjects at once: the camera itself and what the camera “sees” through its lens. “For me, it connected the camera’s past with today’s reality,” he says.
He started the #viewfindersofthepast hashtag to keep track of the photos he was taking, and over time it took off in the community. “Others have started to add photos from a variety of other film cameras,” he says, “which I think is perfect!”
Only When Needed
One package with two different forms depending on whether it’s in storage or in use.
This self-expanding instant food package combines different aspects of sustainability. It saves space in transportation by being compressed – at the same time as it is made out of a 100% bio based and biodegradable material, invented by Innventia.
When pouring hot water into the package the mechano-active material will react to the heat and transform from a compressed package to a serving bowl. This is the new generation of sustainable package design, using materials that are both smart and environmentally friendly.
The project is a collaboration with Innventia with the purpose to combine the knowledge of scientists and the creativity of designers. We opted to use the full potential of the new material, and create the sustainable package design of tomorrow – today.
Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.
A piece of technology that allows users to interact with digital information in a physical way.

He intentado avanzar sin apartar las cosas que me lo impedían;
Agarrado al pasado. Queriendo olvidar, pero sin parar de
recordar… Sin perdonar, sin perdonarme, sin avanzar.
Dónde esta ese grito del futuro. Puede que esté en fijarse bien
y en avanzar. Solo que las cosas pasan… O no.
