Stereoscopic Camera Obscura

Stereoscopic cameras take 2 pictures next to each other at the same time. When the 2 images are viewed next to each other with a viewer, our eyes combine them to create a 3 dimensional image. I took this concept and implemented it with a camera obscura, which is a dark room that has an aperture projecting what is outside of the room into the room upside down on the opposing wall. In this piece the camera obscura has 2 apertures creating 2 images being projected into the room to create a 3 dimensional image on the wall. Utilizing the wind, the images were moving, breathing more life into them. The viewer steps inside the camera obscura and has an experience of being inside a camera while being part of a 3 dimensional light phenomenon. These photographs represent a 2 dimensional perspective of the installation.
