Camera Obscura

Contact Maarten Rutgers.  He made several of these for the 2015 Science Slam.  You look down into the darkened box and you see a "movie" of the world in front of you projected onto a screen.  Either punch small holes in aluminum foil pasted in front of a larger hole and see the world dimly.  Or, take away the foil and use a magnifying glass and make the image much brighter! 

Made by Maarten using boxes and foam from Box City, and magnifying glasses from DAISO on Sawtelle.


Also, there are artists who literally make a dark room.  Preferably an apartment with a great view.  Cover all the windows except for a small hole in one of them.  Then set up a camera inside the room to take a long time exposure of the walls.  Absolutely mesmerizing!
