The human eye is designed to capture images of space around the body sending impulses to the brain where these images are stored in our memory
A proposed set of methods and systems that capture space through the use of the camera obscura to produce the re-presentation of that same space was designed in this thesis
With the onslaught of digitization and digitally infused materials, images are rapidly becoming an integral part of built environments. As such, they are affecting the ways that spaces are developed and the ways that we perceive space
This thesis focused on the process and system designed to capture views of space through an installation containing an occupiable pinhole camera that measured 5'x 8'x 6'
The process and product using this system allowed one to understand in depth, a given space. The process placed one within the space, hidden from the outside, able to watch and hear what occurred around the camera. The outcome of this body of work also developed a new way of documenting space. The parameters set up made it possible to capture images of a given space through the simple form of pinhole photography, producing images in the manner that most closely resembles the way the human eye perceives space
As the author of this work I have placed myself into the sense of another world, a feeling of being "inside the outside." The process placed me within the space I had built and also the space I would document at the same time, but also disconnected me from my surroundings. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
