Camera Obscura

Camera obscura images are made inside any light tight box (can, tent, room, house, etc) with a small hole (serving as an aperture) that allows in light. A piece of black tape works as a shutter. The images are dreamy and mysterious; soft and magical. When I work inside a camera that I can inhabit – a dune shack, Dodge Caravan, a hotdog stand, a fishing tent – I am in a state of pure joy. It is dark and quiet and I hold my breath, watching as the world comes inside, upside down and backwards, conspiring with me to transform the visible world from a daydream into art.
