Camera Obscura

Public art project at the Freedom Square in Tallinn. One of the "52 ideas & surprises" of Tallinn European Capital of Culture 2011. www.52.ee

While waiting for the culture year to arrive, a competition was held for one idea and surprise for each week the year before. This is one of the projects.

When you enter the giant camera, the outside is projected through a pinhole to the black screen inside, and you hear a story about how the photo was invented. It was really interesting to see how people approached walking upside-down before they entered the box.
