Back in 2006, a group of 6 artists transformed an airplane hangar into the world’s largest pinhole camera. What did they do with it? Create the world’s largest photograph, of course. 

The 107 ft. wide by 31 ft. high photo is on display at the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia through November 2014.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”

“Now, to some extent, to say “you need a sea otter” is simply to state a fact about the human condition. We all need a sea otter, because sea otters are terrific. I mean, come on: they hold hands at night to stop themselves drifting away from one another. That is my second favourite fact about sea otters. My favourite fact about sea otters, thanks for asking, is not that they use rocks as tools to break open shellfish on their chests, but that they then put this tool back in their pocket. Sea otters have loose pouches of skin in their armpits, and they store food and tools in them. How can you fail to admire an animal that not only uses tools, but has evolved itself a tool belt?”
