Camera Obscura Workshop

10.30AM – 1.30PM

Camera Obscura Workshop with Floating Land artist Amanda Bennetts.

Experience first-hand the optical phenomenon that all cameras rely on to produce photographs, the Camera Obscura. Watch as the room becomes a camera, projecting the outside world upside down. It’s a truly magical experience!

The workshop starts with Amanda explaining what a camera obscura is and showing examples of the camera obscura built in different eras and artists using the unusual camera obscura in their artmaking practice, including Amanda’s Floating Art installation. Experience a room transformed into a giant camera, stand inside it, and see the outside world appear inside the room. Then, build your own small Camera Obscura out of cardboard. With your camera obscura, you will be able to capture photographs using your mobile phone that are truly beautiful and unique. All materials are supplied, and you get to keep your camera obscura.

$35 incl. materials.

Ages 18+
