Bird Hide Camera

The assemblage of a lid to an insulated fish box, a tyre, a car foot mat, a size 7 left shoe, a size 9 right slider, fishing rope, two wooden pallets, rotted plywood, a tree trunk, Lewisian Gneiss, seaweed and mud created the dark chamber for Bird Hide Camera (left). A hole in a limpet shell set in mud functioned as the aperture (centre). The exterior machair environment’s reflected light travelled through the aperture, projecting its image onto a piece of plywood in the camera obscura’s interior (right).
