The Light Factory

The Light Factory is one of the four machines within the concept 'Under the weather', an open design project about alternative recording.

Within this collaborative project, The Light Factory can be used to record the light and especially the colour of the light. In order to come as close as possible to the real colour of the sky a decision was made to work with analogue photography. Based on the Camera Obscura, this machine captures light on a photographic film. But instead of just pushing a button and developing the film later, the whole process, from unwrapping to exposing to developing, happens inside this one machine. This way the machine encourages a more experimental way of measuring and taking a picture becomes more of a ritual.
