This book contains sixty two photographs taken by hand-made camera obscura.
For one month, I walked through the city of Brussels and collected two hundred cans that I put together to build a structure the size of my body in sitting position. This structure was light-insulated with black plastic bags. I tweaked each can into a camera obscura in order to get images from a 360° angle view within my habitation. I put the structure in the streets and locked myself in. One by one, I pierced the lens of the pinhole cameras through the aluminum. I put photographic paper inside each of them and tried to develop them one after an other. I was able to develop seventy two pictures before having to leave the structure because of the lack of air and oxygen. All images are displayed in this book.
