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

SULLIVANT'S TRAVELS

(2014)

A SITE SPECIFIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE MIND OF A BUILDING

Commissioned by The Ohio State University Department of Dance and College of Arts and Sciences

Sullivant’s Travels is a promenade, site-specific and site-inspired performance event that allows each audience member to select a unique path through the building and to experience various performance events. Some are durational others time specific. No audience member can see everything in one performance. Like immersive theater, everyone will have a slightly different experience and perspective as they journey through Sullivant Hall. Each of the 11 performance works is a world premiere and is inspired by the history of the building, the architecture and/or the current use of specific spaces. The cumulative effect of these works serves as a metaphor for learning,
collaboration, creative play, and dreaming. It is my hope that you will come away from the experience with a new perspective on the life of and the intention of both the building and its mission.

-Stephan Koplowitz, September 2014

PRESS

"Putting the 'grand' in Sullivant Hall’s Grand Opening, Koplowitz and collaborators upstaged even the gloriously rejuvenated building, reintroducing the familiar and putting a memorable imprint on the unfamiliar." -Columbus Alive
