Last Light First Light

Cambridge - 2004

In the dark attic of my studio, a knot-hole in the boarded-up window projected a live image of the street and its people and vehicles on to the ceiling. This had been happening for years, unnoticed. Its discovery invited me to start research on a device at that time entirely unknown to me, the pinhole camera, and its natural extension, the Camera Obscura. Following up these revelations, I conceived a project called Last light first light, relying solely on light-sources, lenses and mirrors; this formed the basis of my Open Studio exhibit in 2004.
