MSU Camera Obscura Project
A Camera Obscura is an optical device that projects an image of its surroundings on a wall or screen. It is used in drawing and for entertainment, and was one of the inventions that led to photography and the camera. The device consists of a dark room with a single hole. Light from an external scene passes through this hole and strikes a surface inside where it is reproduced on a screen overhead. We have created a roaming, walk-in Camera Obscura as part of the President’s Fine Art Series that will be showcased on MSU campus for the next 2 years in a variety of locations.
