Imagine stepping inside of a camera. With the help of a simple light trick, you will be surrounded by your city in a whole new ‘light’. Camera Obscura | Projected City is an art installation that presents our city in a truly unique way. One that takes you to a time before digital and film photography, and before the invention of the camera, all while teaching you about the original ‘dark room’. Step inside to see your outside city.
