Obscura is one of eight new films commissioned by Tintype exploring different aspects and perspectives of the street the gallery is located.
The large window at Tintype gallery became an interface for the inside and outside, as the space was transformed into a camera obscura. An inverted image of the street flooded the interior space, projecting onto the walls, ceiling and floor.
Filmed from sunrise to sunset using timelapse, Obscura is a juxtaposition of the internal space of the gallery with the external environment of the street.
