Wooden pinhole camera (plywood, MDF board, metal)
Video (35 mm scanned film),
The work displays different stages of the process of making what is intended as the final product of art. The installation consists of a self-made wooden circular pinhole camera structure, photographs and a video.
The camera is 2,7 m in diameter and takes 240 individual frames of the subject placed in the middle of the structure. In this installation, it is exhibited as a sculptural object in the middle of the space. Displayed on the wall are test images. The material filmed with the circular camera is shown in the monitor. The by-products transcend the intended work of art, the video piece, by size and volume. The video piece, which is presented either as a video or as photoghraphy prints, is titled About Time. The installation aims at making processes and practice visible.
