Star Shed is a multi-aperture camera obscura chamber. Using the basic principles of light each hole/aperture focuses light reflecting off the landscape onto a rear projection screen in the darkened shed. Each aperture projects an unique view of outside, upside down and backward creating a kaleidoscope of images. The pattern is not random but that of the stars that are in the southern skies at this location and time of year but are invisible due to sunlight.
