A BRIGHT DARK ROOM:
WEEK TWO - TWEENS
We spent the day on the roof, playing with direct sunlight, creating images of the sky and the buildings around us. We enacted The Camera Dance, working together to create a physical embodiment of the camera, throwing light (tissue paper) through an aperture (someone's encircled arms) at a sensor (a piece of black cardstock), but only when the shutter (a black blanket) is open. We brought out a few film cameras and fired them with their backs open, to watch the shutter action. To gain an understanding of just how fast 1/8000 of a second is, we did some action photography, capturing some girls in mid-leap.
