景庫 Perspective House
來自加拿大多倫多，曾在蒙特婁協和大學學習攝影。他以鏡頭創作影像，使用暗箱、黑影照片、大片幅相機等裝置。他的影像把攝影過程縮減為光在物質表面上的累積。丹尼爾曾於加拿大、美國、瑞典展出作品，曾在蒙特婁與魁北克參與協和大學的畢業生駐村計畫，也贏得瑞典哥得蘭島的布魯斯伯夏季駐村獎學金。自2011年，丹尼爾與貝拉．克雷恩（Bella Klein）共同合作拖車暗箱（Trailer Obscura），把一台移車的拖車變成移動攝影機，走遍加拿大美國，透過針孔鏡頭記錄景觀。
Perspective House examines the place of Soulangh through spacial interventions of industrial spaces within the park. Train cars, rooms and a house imbedded within the SAV landscape have been transformed into site-specific camera obscuras. The exhibition has taken its title from the first written record describing the camera obscura by Han Chinese philosopher Mozi, in circa 388BCE. The ancient observations extend photographic history beyond its‘invention’ in 1839 and expand the photographic image from a computer screen or prints to include the projection from a pinhole. The ephemeral light projection from inside the cameras has been fixed onto film and recorded with video. The light installations present a fragmented plural view of the landscape which is simultaneously interior and exterior space. Perspective House address place, the changing landscape of SAV, methods of recording and the history of the photographic medium.
Daniel Paterson is from Toronto, Canada he studied photography at Concordia University in Montreal. He creates lens-based images and installations using camera obscuras, photograms, and large format cameras. His images reduce the photographic process to the accumulation of light on a material surface. Daniel has exhibited work in Canada, the United States, and Sweden. He has participated in the Concordia graduate residency in Montreal, Quebec and The Brucebo Summer Residency Scholarship in Gotland, Sweden. Since 2011 Daniel has collaborated with Bella Klein on Trailer Obscura, together they converted a car utility trailer into a mobile camera and traveled throughout Canada and the United States documenting the
landscape through a pinhole lens.
About Pinhole Camera
The image created by a pinhole camera has certain characteristics which we won't find in classical lens photography. Since the process entails a central projection, the images in the pinhole camera are rendered in ideal perspective.
Another special characteristic is the infinite depth of field which, in a single photograph, allows objects to be captured with equal sharpness whether they are very close up or far away.
The pinhole camera takes in an extremely wide angle. The rays of light, however, take much longer to reach the edges of the negative than the centre, thus the picture is less exposed along the edges and therefore darkens.
A certain disadvantage of the pinhole camera is the amount of light allowed through (small aperture), which complicates and sometimes prevents entirely the photographing of moving subjects. Exposure time is normally counted in seconds or minutes but, in bad lighting conditions, this could be hours or even days (see Determining exposure times for pinhole cameras).
