Make Your Own Camera Workshops

Make Your Own Camera Workshops are free mini-workshops presented in conjunction with Londsdale Quay’s 30th anniversary and Erin Siddall and Sean Arden’s art installation for Capture.

Burrard Inlet Big Camera is an enterable, site-specific camera obscura located temporarily within a freight container on the northern shore of the Burrard Inlet at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver for the month of April 2016. Using a single aperture, multiple angled mirrors, and a camera bellows to project an image of the surrounding landscape, Burrard Inlet Big Camera examines inconsistencies and vagaries in the nature of seeing in relation to cameras and lenses. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to use a hands-on approach to learn to make a simple pinhole camera in order to create images.
