What if we were 11 feet tall?

Yumiko Tanaka created SpyRod, a camera connected to a long stick with fishing line. The idea is that children can see and record the world from very different view points: a very low viewpoint, as if they were little creatures, a world as if they were giant or simply discover the world from their size-view.

By exploring the potential of new small cheap cameras, and by rethinking how children might use them, they stop being cameras and become third eyes.

This kind of experiment is very interesting. My 3 years old daughter have been taking pictures with a cybershot camera for almost 6 months. The results are stunning, the pictures makes sense. It's very interesting to see what's important to them and the way they see the world.
