Periscope by Spencer Finch

Periscope is one of many amazing and conceptual projects created by Spencer Finch, it is a photographic device composed of mirrors and ventilation ducts that extends from inside the Rhona Hoffman Gallery to the outside and allows visitors to view the changing sky. The periscope was used to expose a cyanotype directly on the wall of the gallery, creating a hazy blue image from a two-day exposure of the Chicago sky (3/26/09-3/27/09). Materials: Ventilation duct, mirrors, cyanotype exposure. See more;
