A friend and I have been working on a large camera obscura tent which is portable. I love creating camera obscuras and often turn my bedroom into one. There is something magical about waking up in the morning and finding oneself immersed in a moving, live image. Nature’s light installations.
Much more refining to do…and we are now thinking about other ways of ‘recording the image’ as it becomes distorted when the tent is caught in a gusts of wind and this added to the experience when sitting inside.
Here are some Vimeo clips of other camera obscura amazingness:
I shot and edited this documentary film about artist Adam Hennessey. He is showing at The Other Art Fair next weekend.
