Siba Sahabi - Obscura

For designer Siba Sahabi I photographed her design project Obscura. The photographic collages on the surface of each sculpture were previously captured inside the same shape using the principles of a pinhole camera, also known as a camera obscura.

The sculptures are made out of steel, copper and brass and were treated, on their interior surfaces, with a light sensitive emulsion. Siba then exposed these surfaces to light through three to six pinholes per object and developed the black and white images in a darkroom. After coating the photographs with resin each camera obscura was finally re-assembled with the photographs facing outwards. The final sculptures simultaneously embody both states: apparatus and work of art.
