  1. Drawing with light- a community drawing. An immersive experience of ‘Being Inside the Camera Obscura- an simple antiquarian device- a magic box, a walk-in photographic camera – essentially a darkened room, into which the outside light is allowed through the small aperture, and is projected upside down and reverse on the wall opposite. The power of light filling softly the room- alluding to the origins of photography. Participants explore the magic of science behind simple device of Camera Obscura. For a group of Children ’For a group of children, also those with hearing loss or visual impairment/ or a Family day out—open for everyone.
    • A group of children from school or parties of families are invited inside the camera room to ‘chase the light’ projected inside. Using different pen colors provided, the group will be able to trace the light and create a communal drawing from the location in the city that the floating camera is placed for duration of the workshop.

After returning to the foundation they are given an opportunity to re-purpose the items they found: creating new designs of the ceramic cup, making it their own. Recreated objects could be sold at the foundation shop online and on location. The money raised by the action is then used to provide a school (that group of children’s in from with things they need.
