Technical notes on the camera obscura:

 

• The LENS of the camera was custom built: It is an achromatic Doublet lens with 6 inches diameter and 102 inches focal length (f/17). The lens is fully coated to reduce reflections.

 

• The CAMERA was built under strict specifications to meet both public access codes and the needs of the artistic project which require the camera to be portable (able to be re-installed in different sites), large enough to accommodate as many as 25 people at a time.

 

• Our eyes naturally see things upside down; it is our brain that processes the image "right side up".

 

• Revealed Portfolio 1.0 consists of 22 photographs

 

• Revealed portfolio photos are archival pigment ink prints and measure 24" X 24"

 

• Portfolio 1.0 was created with a Hasselblad H2 camera with a 22 MP Leaf back, June, 2006.

 

A special portfolio of high quality photographic prints have been created using this camera obscura and featuring images from the site-specific performance. For information on viewing and purchasing these prints, please contact Stephan Koplowitz at skoplowitz@gmail.com

SUMMER STAGES DANCE AND THE INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART/BOSTON

Commissioned by Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy and co-presented with the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, (iseea) was was made in direct response to specific sites of the ICA building.

The piece was the result of three weeks of choreographic research and rehearsal, and was created to be seen as both a live/physical art installation and temporal performance event.

Beginning near the entrance of the museum and ending in front of the grandstand beneath the cantilever, the outdoor performance wrapped around the exterior of the building, responding to the design of the new ICA by intimately exploring the visual rhythms and patterns of the architecture. The work is divided into seven sections and was seen by close to 2,000 people over two days (6 performances in total).

The cast of this work was comprised of 22 Boston area dancers from approximately eight different dance companies.

Named by the Boston Globe, Ten Best Dance Works of 2007
