A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture, a pinhole. It is 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. This light proof box could be matchbox for example.
The “360 Matchbox Pinhole Camera” project brings together the ancient technique of pinhole photography and new technologies using Arduino.
The idea is to mount a panoramic camera, using pinhole cameras arranged in a circle. The micro-controller Arduino will control the exposure time of the film in the cameras. Various visual effects can be achieved through different orders of exposure.
“I wanted to mix primitive photographic knowledge with new media, to produce a prototype that outwardly appears old and handcrafted, but contains new technologies inside.”
Interactivos? events are a hybrid between a production workshop, a seminar and a showcase. A research and production platform for the creative and educational uses of technology.
