PhotoGraphy Uses Pinhole Camera To Decorate Vases

PhotoGraphy from ShiKai Tseng on Vimeo.

The idea is as simple as it is brillant: coat a vase (or other three-dimensional object) with photo-sensitive solution and expose them inside a special pinhole camera (special because it has more than one pinholes). After exposure to a scene, the vases are then developed in a darkroom like a normal photograph.

“PhotoGraphy” is the creation of a process in which the environment, time and light react to each other and generate images on three-dimensional objects. The objects are coated with a “light-sensitive” layer, put in a black box with strategically placed holes, and exposed for 5 to 50 minutes depending on the brightness of the environment. It is a new way to capture a moment in time, no matter whether the image on the object is focused or losing focus – the object will carry the trace of its first moments of experience, its first exposure.

I guess it would be cool if you could ask to take the vase and pinhole camera home (or wherever), expose the vase to a preferred view that has some deep meaning for you and then return the vase for development.

This is the same artist/photographer who makes a box pinhole camera with film paper (sensitive side inside), makes a pinhole, exposes them, develops the camera/film, then turns the box inside out with the exposed and developed part of the film paper on the outside. It’s all explained on his site.
