Electric Barge Camera by Brendan Barry and Positive View Foundation
The MacGyver of light painting has made cameras from things like fruit to a friggin’ skyscraper, so it’s a-boat time he hit the water with the Electric Barge Camera by Brendan Barry. Fighting light and water leaks, Brendan is back again this time with a boat turned camera obscura, believe it or knot. Sea what I did there?
Brendan worked with a group of young people from the Positive View Foundation as part of their Youth Empowerment Programme. The project entails the transformation of an Electric Barge on a canal in London into a giant, floating, working camera with a built in darkroom. If things like this float your boat, you can check out this oar-inspiring project below.
