I seem to always be straddling eras of technology and the Camera Obscura Project which was a collaboration with Charles Schwartz is a great example. It began with Charles’ Camera Obscura which is located on the upper east side of Manhattan with a dramatic view over New York City’s Central Park. We spent years using a digital camera to photograph the pre-photographic live camera obscura images. A catalog of the work “Visions In The Dark” was produced for an exhibition at the Alan Klotz Gallery.
Recently I produced a new 3D printed edition of the catalog images. The back of the book has a pinhole just like an ancient camera obscura. It is printed using a Makerbot Replicator 2 in black and translucent PLA with archival inkjet prints inside, the book is 3.875″ x 3.75″ x 0.5″, slip case is 4″ x 3.5″ x 0.5″; price: $1400, edition of 10
