A short stop-motion of a pinhole camera made to ABADIR academy of design in Catania with whom I work:

  • Architects: Mariano Dallago
  • Project: Camera Obscura
  • Location: Trentino, Italy

The work “Camera Obscura” was created for the competition SMACH.IT http://smach.it a competition of land art in the Dolomites in Trentino, in San Martino in Val Badia, on “Border”

Here the link to my location:

http://smach.it/location3/(photos and interviews in to the site are of Gustav Willeit) For some time I worked about the idea of ​​using lenses and building works into the landscape.

The beginning was born long ago reading “One Hundred Years of Solitude”G.G.Marquez. I like to think that when Aureliano speaks Amaranta “scientific possibility of seeing the future showing thug in time a sonesees what is written on back of a sheet of paper through the light”, he talked about photography

And then looking at the “metaphors” of Ettore Sottsass, his outdoor installations.

Finally the inspiration about Italo Calvino when more than two decades ago spoke of anepidemic of pestilential image saying that, We live under a heavy barrage of images, the most powerful media do nothing but turn the world into images and multiply it through a game of mirrors, the images that are often devoid of innernecessity that should characterize each image, as a form and as meaning, as strength to assert it self as a wealth of possible meanings. Most of these images dissolves immediately as the dreams that leave no trace in the memory, but does not dissolve a feeling of strangeness and discomfort.

Here, these are the referencesthatovertime led meto work on the “Camera Obscura”. Build some thing great in the landscape that would reflecting a mirror the landscape, and I finally realized no permanent image just in the eyes and above all in the mind of the beholder.

I liked the idea of building a camera that doesn’t do the photos, but that leaves look just an hypothetical shot.

Some links of works done in time about these concepts.

The theme of the “border” is there for an invitation to enter the world of images, as well as the light gets inside a camera. And entering into a camera as you would getting a photo project and pass the line between reality and image, between real image and latent image, between the real and its reproduction.

“Camera Obscura” was first designed in Rhino and then built with the help of Silvia and Luciano Paschetto http://paschettomobili.it mounted in joinery and then disassembled and reassembled alone in San Martino in Val Badia in early June and will remain on site until 12 September.
