In Darmstadt it’s installation day. NQ was given a small cabin on the grounds of the Internationales Waldkunst Zentrum (IWZ) for our camera obscura. Using the room measurements and the size of the sign, we worked out the lens size while in New York, but there is still a lot to figure out. What will block out the light completely? Where to place the lens? How to get the best image in the room with all the shade from the forest outside? We are so pleased to welcome Linsey Laserte and Ethan Martin to Darmstadt…they are awesome assistants and just fun!
Next Question was invited by curator Ute Ritschel to particpate in StadtgARTen: Vogelfrei 10, Urbanität, Mobilität, Freiheit. The opening is August 24th and it runs until September 8…in Darmstadt Germany.
We will show a multi-part project entitled ‘Lenz,’ after the novella written by playwright and poet Georg Büchner, born near Darmstadt in 1813.
