In the 4th century B.C., Euclid conjectured on the nature of light and its retention in a pinhole camera…
A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box.
Our project takes up Euclid’s idea of the “light-proof box” and re-imagines it as a collaborative, online gallery of photography and fiction.
There is a metaphor involved somewhere in there and it probably has something to do with memory and the imagination and how they might work together, like a camera, like a pinhole or like a light-proof box.
