Lauren Bon peers through the shutter inside The Liminal Camera October 29, 2014.
The Liminal Camera: Chicago, an exhibit at the DePaul Art Museum, will feature newly-commissioned photographs made in and around Chicago by Lauren Bon, Richard Nielsen, and Tristan Duke of the Optics Division of the Metabolic Studio.
Working with the Liminal Camera, a massive portable camera fashioned from a shipping container, the Optics Division utilizes experimental photographic technology in an ongoing project to map and depict the American landscape. The large-scale prints produced in Chicago not only engage with the evolving history of photographic imaging but also place the city within a complex global network of waterways, transportation, industry and commerce.
