Pup Tent Camera Obscura installed in a "Burned Landscape" in the Oregon Desert Trail (Bureau of Lands Management Land)

Pup Tent Camera Obscura is a repurposed 1970s/80s McKinley A-frame tent modified to be completely dark inside and fitted with a set of simple lenses on one end. Inside the room the lens projects the world outside onto the walls of the room and onto hand-held paper. The darkened tent becomes a temporary site for one or two people. A moving image on the tent wall stirs in the breeze and a proto-filmic experience emerges.
