Camparc invites people to explore their surroundings using these unique camera toys through free play. Anamorphic puzzles are drawn on streets and walls in the surrounding area to provide players with additional challenges. These drawings tie together the screen, balls and space in one delightful experience.
For this project I collaborated with Hubbub on a commission by STRP. I was responsible for both the hardware and the software of the installation. 4 balls were created for the project, consisting of off-the-shelf inflatable aquabubbles with custom-built half-gyroscopic 360 degree panoramic video cameras inside each ball. Inside each ball, 4 hoops hold a raspberrypi, camera, 360 degree lens and battery upright while people play with the ball.
