A Camera Obscura at the Gladstone
Outside-Inside Upside-Down is an installation transforming one room of the Gladstone into a camera obscura. Literally translated as “darkened room”, a camera obscura is an optical device pre-dating modern photography.
Historically used for tracing landscapes, this optical device functions like the body of a camera, where the aperture in the window (lens) projects an image onto the wall (film). Our installation includes a display of plants on the roof outside which will appear upside-down on the wall, along with the adjacent buildings and background skyline.
On display as part of Gladstone Grow Op April 26-28, 2013 at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto
