Copernican Camera: Rotation 217th November, 2018
This video is the second full loop I’ve shot with the Copernican Camera, a motorised camera mount I made to bring a non-geocentric perspective to an everyday context.
The first time it was in Scotland following the stars, this time it was tracking the sun from a pub in North London called The Happy Man.
In May, just after shooting and editing the second loop, I showed both videos opposite each other, as well as the machine used to make them, as part of an exhibition called Cosmic Perspectives at Ugly Duck gallery in Bermondsey.
I’ve written a little about the machine and the ideas behind it here: Copernican Camera Version 2
