MSU's Camera Obscura, an optical device that projects an image of its surroundings on a wall or screen, will be on the Library grounds August through mid-September. THe device consists of a dark room with a single hole. Light from an external scene passes through this hole and strikes a surface inside where it is reproduced on a screen overhead. You really need to visit the Camera Obscura to understand what it's all about and understand its impact...So stop in the yurt-like structure on the front Plaza!
Last spring 17 MSU students were given the task of designing and building a camera obscura. Students participated from the School of Art, School of Architecture, School of Film & Photography, and Department of Civil Engineering.
