Sightseeing Bus Camera

Tokihiro Sato+Ray Project (SYUTA)
Ogaki Event House
Runs on holidays and weekends: 11:00-12:00, 14:00-17:30 every half hour

The camera obscura is based on the simple principle that if a pinhole is made in the side of a dark box, an image of the outside will be projected on its interior. Sightseeing Bus Camera can be thought of as a large and mobile camera obscura, inside of which exterior scenery is projected while the bus drives around town. The audience/passengers can encounter the scenery of Ogaki in a new fashion by enjoying this visual experience.
Created in partnership with MOBIUM
