Concept: Distortion

There is this very strange feeling that you get when you are standing in a room and all that surrounds you is the projected image of what is outside your window.  The room will be dimly lit but a view will turn corners and wrap the room like wallpaper.  Some may wonder how this is done as it seems like such a crazy concept.  Actually, it is the most simple and I guess you could say barbaric form of photography there is.  Pinhole photography uses no lenses, no mirrors, and no shutter.  It is nothing but a hole small enough to not let light drench whatever space is around it.  It is definitely different from anything photographic these days and when experimented with the possibilities are endless.  You are able to warp the world and distort everything visible into whatever shape the light is contained in.
