This video seeks to explore the use of the video camera in architectural analysis.
Much of current architectural thought deals with the interaction between light and architectural space through the medium of an aperture. Through this experiment I sought to study the passage of time, in the form of the movement of the sun, through a number of different aperture combinations.
I produced a box which was then subdivided into 9 equal sized compartments; each compartment with a varying aperture configurment. Every aperture was the same size and centrally located on the plane through which it cut. One compartment with no opening was kept as a control.
The box was placed on a South facing window and a photo taken every 10 seconds for 24 hours. This produced the timelapse footage which can then be studied to determine ideal aperture combinations for the desired architectural effect required at that site.
