Interior view of the camera obscura
2013
Viewers of Target Six-16 are encouraged to enter the installation to experience the inner workings of a camera. On the front of the camera is a lens and a small infrared sensor connected to the camera shutter. When the sensor is activated by motion it opens the shutter allowing light to enter inside of camera via the lens. The cameras lens projects an upside-down image of the exterior onto a large spool of thin transparent fabric in the interior of the camera. Within this camera obscura, the everyday world is re-contextualized by literally turning the perception of the everyday upside-down.
