Lightbox is a large-scale Camera Obscura environment from within which viewers can experience current Antarctic environmental conditions, surrounded by a multitude of light refractions and visual imagery projected through custom lenses. The audience can explore the somewhat mystical qualities of those optical effects generated by the Aurora Australis as seen from a Camera Obscura. Lightbox serves as a crossover space where ideas about optics, light, meterology and design meet.
