Inside a room, the visitor encounters a black alcove in which a body is resting; the light from a slide projector, operated
by Jensen, alternately illuminates the front and back of the living torso. Projected close-up images of folds, scars and
marks on the skin, and cracks in the wall, are transforming this still life in front of our eyes.

Witnessing this process, the C A M E R A  O B S C U R A , one has the sensation of looking at the body for the first time.
Poetic and hypnotic, the encounter lasts for four hours between the photographic eye of Vibeke Jensen, the body of
Orietta Crispino, and the public.
