Camera Obscura #2 (2004-2005)
Working with Camera Obscura #1 taught me the differences between the physical object and it's photographic reproduction. What would it mean if I discarded the idea of photographic reproduction and replaced it with the concept of extrapolation? Not to confirm the viewers knowledge about fysical and functional properties of an object but to generate an imaginary object.
I needed to be able to control lightning and positioning in a more precise way than possible in outdoor photography. This farm provided the right condition. No rain and wind, no fluctuating natural light. Just me and the objects, sculpting the projection.
Part of the interior of this farm is darkened by building a lightproof wall. A lens is mounted in the wall. Objects are positioned in front of the lens. The lens projects an image directly onto large format photographic paper, which is then developed inside the camera.
