Cloudland- Robyn Stacey
Robyn Stacey is one of Australia’s preeminent contemporary photographers.
This exhibition presented new and recent works of Stacey’s all taken utilising the camera obscura technique. MoB’s curatorial and exhibitions team assisted Stacey to find iconic, significant Brisbane sites- with equally significant views outside- and set the rooms up to become a camera obscura.
Because the resulting photographs are upside-down, back-to-front, slick and effective, people viewing the photographs assume that Stacey has digitally manipulated the image. For this reason we decided to create our own camera obscura installation within the space in order to immerse the patron in the camera obscura experience and understand the physics of light.
