Architectural Camera Obscura
New York-based artist Zoe Leonard will transform London’s Camden Arts Centre into a giant camera obscura next month, projecting the architectural structure of the building onto the floors, walls and ceiling of the room.
Likely to prove a major attraction for visitors seeking highly immersive, real-world experiences, a lens will allow daylight to flood the space, recreating the environment outside on an almost cinematic scale. An exhibition of photographs of the sun and a sculptural installation of found images will also be on display.
The concept aims to unite experience, image and object into one cohesive narrative in order to explore the possibilities of photography as both a medium and a practice.
