Giant Mobile Camera Obscura

I was searching the hallways of Tyler School of Art last fall, for the perfect room to convert into a camera obscura and came up empty handed. When I introduce pinhole to my photo process classes, I have always turned a room into a walk in camera so students can experience on a large scale, what I am asking them to build on a much smaller scale. I was really kind of bummed that I couldn’t give them the “wow factor” that other first time pinholers have experienced. Then I bumped into my friend Stephen in our local food coop and told him about my dilemma. He teaches architecture at Tyler and understood my pain so while blocking the isles near the bagels, we decided to collaborate with our students and build our own camera. 7 feet tall, 5 feet wide and 9 feet long…..with wheels!
