It was great to be invited back to Exeter College to be part of a city wide digital design festival – Connected Exeter. Alongside the camera obscura were interactive exhibitions on 3D printing, wearable technology, space suit design, climate change posters and lots more I didn’t get to see!
I was busy introducing people to the camera obscura and sharing a little about the rich history and how they have been used in different ways through time. I was also shooting portraits to document the day, sending them wirelessly inside to be printed there and then – a fitting mix of ancient and cutting edge tech. I’ve shared a few portraits below…
Many thanks to the staff at Exeter College and all the organisers of Connected Exeter. I hope it’ll be back next year even bigger and better!
There were lots of visitors interested in hearing more how the obscura can work as an actual image making camera – without a digital sensor in sight! Watch this video of this in action..
