London Apparatus is the final project I presented when I was at the Slade School of Fine Art back in 2011. It's a video documentation of my wandering in London that eventually became an installation. It's a complex enough project that, if not seen in person, needs a bit of explaining with multiple photos.
So here's the full documentation and the making process.
I got this little contraption custom-made at the metal shop. It's a digital camera mounted at a specific height and angle looking into the viewfinder of the Mamiya C220 medium format camera.
This is what it looked like to be filming with this apparatus. I always had to be looking down when filming.
A stranger walking by wanted to photograph me with it.
I custom built this screen in the woodshop to stand that way at that height. I used a wide angle projector, which allowed me to project from a shorter distance.
The camera used to film the content was placed in front of the screen, so when turned on, there was a live feed of what was playing on the screen....in the digital camera monitor. A meta-narrative, if you will.
