Camera (2007)

Camera was recorded during a gallery show.
A series of elements were installed on tripods in the space. These functioned as a Super 8 camera that recorded the street in front. The gallery thus became its enclosure.
Visitors to the show interacted with its mechanism and left traces on the final film as they walked around the space.
The resulting 45 minute long film has been later projected, always as a one evening event.
