Camera obscura is the Latin term for “dark room” and typically consists of any darkened space with a small aperture that emits into the interior a ray of sunlight illuminating a white surface such as a wall or screen. The set up or installation facilitates a luminous moving image of the exterior world in real time. In this artist talk, two of the most innovative cinematic practitioners of their generation, Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, rediscover and even redefine this centuries-old optical device as a form of cinema at once ancient and contemporary.
