About the project.

A Camera Obscura creates an overwhelming inverted cinematic scene of the world outside within the confinds of the darkened room through a small appeture and lens.

World renowned photographer Robyn Stacey approached me through a mutual friend to illuminate her structure 'Camera Obscura'.

The Camera Obscura will only function throughout the day, however the artist wanted to create a sense of scene that filled the walls of the mirrored exterior of the surface. 

As lighting designer, my challenge was to create a lighting design that simultaneously drew audiences eys to the structure and enhanced the  surrounding area allowing passers-by to experience their involvement in the cinematic scene throughout the night.
