The Camera Obscura was made in two ways. One was into a camping tent with the choice to use one of the two holes at two different levels. Inside they could put one or two large photographic papers to be impressed from the light entering from the hole (called stenopaic hole). They used other two Camera Obscura, two big cardboard boxes which they especially ordered to develop the workshop. They also used various colored filters to obtain different color in the photographs. The subject of the pictures is the landscape they found around them. The way to show it is with a not visible horizon to recognize, but with different points of view, which brings the audience to discover a new universe in nature. In the soundscape of the interview's background we can hear a Gotz's musical composition named Intrauterin # 1.
