Everyone knows what a camera is. Some know roughly how it works. However, few people have had the opportunity to step inside a camera. That’s where DARK TRUCK comes in.
DARK TRUCK is a completely light sealed space on wheels, transformed into a walk-in camera obscura, for people to take part in a shared experience seeing their home in a whole new way.
Viewers are offered a unique experience to step inside the camera obscura and re-imagine the world around them, flipped upside down and back to front, covering the inside walls with a wash of moving colour imagery.
DARK TRUCK CAMERA
As well as the Camera Obscura, Faraday's DARK TRUCK is also Western Australia’s only fully functioning, GIANT MOBILE CAMERA - essentially, a giant polaroid camera on wheels.
Creating large format negatives inside the light sealed space, Faraday's DARK TRUCK Camera showcases first hand, the process of turning a negative image into a positive in broad daylight, in this unforgettable interactive installation.
Through masterful dark room techniques, Faraday reminds us all of the magic of traditional photography, as we are invited to reflect on the unpredictability of life we all face, in this fast paced, instant digital world.
We’ve all taken a selfie - A selfie (/sɛlfiː/) is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a smartphone, often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
They are for vanity, usually flattering, and made to appear casual.
DARK TRUCK’S UNSELFIE is the complete opposite.
Through a unique and engaging darkroom film photography process UNSELFIE allows us to share positive and negative feelings about ourselves, our world or our society.
Reconnecting everyone with a shared understanding that no matter what our facebook status says we are all fragile and imperfect. UNSELFIE project, records a unique snap shot of a moment in our lives, to look back on for decades to come.
