Loveland Feed & Grain
Architectural Optics – 2011
Loveland Feed & Grain was a temporary optical installation in a long-disused grain mill in Loveland, Colorado. The cavernous dusty spaces situated on the edge of the pains were filled with old equipment and the sound of trains. A long whitewashed brick wall received a panoramic image of the eastern sky, with the neighboring buildings and trees showing as a frieze at the top and sweeping, receding sky flowing across the intervening expanse. Seven apertures in a clerestory window allowed the camera obscura optics to illuminate the long wall using only natural daylight and self-projected images.
