What people are saying:

The exhibition's name is really too long and abstract, and the committee found on its website that the exhibition actually contains three parts: the city dark box, the light and shadow world, and the top floor view. There is a beautiful dream light shadow space in the light and shadow world, there are also realistic optical interesting exhibitions, like what time and space tunnel, mirror maze, here can also exchange nose with friends! All in all, well-crafted tricks with light and shadow, brought us a magical art tour that combines architectural space, art and technology experience. Need to buy tickets.

Additional Information

Introduction

Perched on top of the Royal Mile, Camera Obscura is the place to 'see' Edinburgh - however not necessarily by looking at the views! Instead, visitors look at a white disk in the middle of a darkened room onto which the surrounding area is projected (including all the innocent and oblivious passers-by). There's a voyeuristic air amongst the viewers, as they hover around the images, chuckling as people and things are singled out for scrutiny - all good fun.
