Camera Obscura

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! 

This could be made with boxes and foam and magnifying glasses.


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!
