The World Turned Upside Down
One bright afternoon on a largely deserted stretch of the Suffolk coast a tall mirrored box housing a small portable camera obscura was temporarily placed on the shingle. It attracted people like magpies. This simple structure superimposed one horizon onto another, and provided a moment in which part of the coast was captured by refracted light in a dark, solitary space. It provoked discussion with those outside and quiet contemplation for him lying down, looking upward as The World Turned Upside Down.

The portable camera obscura and documentation of this event were shown in East to East: from Aldeburgh Beach to Landguard Point at the Waterfront Gallery, Ipswich in July 2013. It is part of Jane’s on-going research project East to East.
