ABC Wednesday: I is for Inside

My imagination infers a fairy tale family must live inside the NCMA's Cloud Chamber for Trees and Sky.


In reality this work by British artist Chris Drury is a camera obsura devise that projects the sky and trees onto the interior surfaces.


Above is the ceiling and below is where the ceiling meets the inside walls.


Next is a shot I took inside looking out. By the way, I've been inside the Cloud Chamber for Trees and Sky many times but I've never seen anything projected on the interior surfaces, perhaps because of the light during the time I was  at the NC Museum of Art Park.


 Below you can see the irregular stones on the exterior walls.

Love the stone and moss on the obscura.
There is an Camera Obscura by the Cliff House in San Francisco right on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean. It is a fascinating concept.

I've never heard or seen such a structure. Too bad you've missed seeing the sky projected. That would be a fascinating sight.

Great creative post for the Letter I. I'm with some of the others in that I don't think I've heard of a Camera obscura before.
