Art Dept. Camera Obscura at Festival of the Forks

Ancient optical techniques will add to the festive atmosphere on Albion’s Superior Street during this year’s Festival of the Forks in a project that links Albion College’s Art Department with Albion’s historic downtown. Albion College Art professors Ashley Feagin and Amy Rahn and their art and art history students have collaborated with Peggy Sindt of Albion’s Economic Development Corporation to transform an empty storefront into, essentially, a huge camera.


Rahn explains, “The technology of the camera obscura was known even in the ancient world. If you simply create a darkened room with a tiny pinhole for daylight to pass through, an upside-down color image of the outside world projects onto the wall. It’s the same technology that film cameras use, just bigger, and without film!” Feagin adds, “Viewers will essentially be standing in a giant camera!”


The Albion Camera Obscura will be open for only one day, Saturday, September 20, when visitors can see Albion’s annual festivities as never before—upside-down and in color!


The Albion Camera Obscura, located at 119 S. Superior St., will be open from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, during Albion’s Festival of the Forks. This event is free and open to the public.


For more information, contact the Art Department office at 517/629-0246.
