“To try and understand nature we have to be like her. And if we wish to take her portrait, we need a camera that is also like her: big, very big and always moving.
But since a camera like this does not exist, we had to build it ourselves.
This is the cameratruck project.”
The cameratruck is bounding through spain as we speak, taking giant pinhole negatives (about 3 meters wide!) as it navigates the treacherous roadways and ecstatic views. I can’t wait to see what it comes up with, and I love the pseudo clunky spy element involved. As you can see, this giant truck has a tiny window inconspicuously drilled in its side, which enables it to make all of enormous images. How impractical! How marvelous!
