Photoscopia

 

 

2009

 

This monumental, sculptural kaleidoscope has an internal camera that enables participants to photograph and print their unique interior view.

The lenses operate individually in an infinite, ever-changing dream-like odyssey.

Gazing inside the kaleidoscope you will enter an “awakened dreamspace”. There are three lenses that reflect in the viewspace which are controlled by hand. The “waking lens” has an array of realistic images and objects; the “dream lens” is moody, and surreal, with symbolic imagery; and a windmill provides a spectrum of color. 

 

A temporary participant generated art exhibit with works filled with symbolism and expressive content was created at the Festival.  Participants were asked to title their image and write a brief artist statement.
