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

Dance Camera West Performance (2016)



Learn, Capture, Repeat is an audience participation media event that invites everyone to participate in the creation of a dance/music video almost instantaneously. Participants are asked to learn and repeat a 3

second (four count) movement phrase that is recorded, edited, processed and almost immediately projected onto a screen or monitor for all to see. As more and more of these phrases are captured, different digital effects begin to permeate the live editing of the accumulating dances creating a fun, digitally enhanced animated experience that is literally “crowd sourced” by the audience.

Learn, Capture, Repeat has flexibility in terms of content:


  • Coupled with a green screen (in order to insert any kind of background or logo) behind the performers.

  • Connected to a musical score of any kind (from pop to contemporary to experimental)

  • Feature more than one performer at a time, alternate between solos, duets and groups of people.

Learn, Capture, Repeat has flexibility in terms of context:


  • Learn, Capture, Repeat can be produced for a specific population of people as a “portrait” of company, a class of students of any age, any kind of team (corporate, sports, etc), an ensemble, a family, a small town or village, a neighborhood, a book club, Rotary Club, alumni reunion.

  • Projected in Times Square (any popular public space) with participants being captured outside in a closed off area or a tent. It could be done as part of a festival, in a gallery, before a specific concert, lecture, meeting, etc...The possibilities are endless.
