SEOUL, Sept. 26 (Korea Bizwire) — A special exhibition will take place where visitors enter a camera chamber 6 meters wide and 3 meters tall to look at upside-down images of South Korea’s cultural heritage.
The National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage began an exhibition tour that goes around Sungnyemun Gate, Ulleung and Dokdo islands, Gwanghwamun Square, and Gyeongbok Palace on Wednesday.
The exhibition uses a camera obscura, a chamber in which everything looks upside down.
Visitors can affix translucent paper on the inner glass of the lens installed inside the chamber to draw a picture of upside-down images displayed on the lens.
“We came up with the exhibition to look at cultural heritages from an educational, while interesting, point of view,” said Lee Myong-ho, a photographer and the joint host of the exhibition.
