"Domus Oculi"

FotoFocus exhibit Domus Oculi — or “House of Eyes” — is being held over in Camp Washington through Nov. 18.

The freestanding structure created to house camera obscura viewing devices uses antiquated lenses and traditional image-capturing techniques to contrast their methodology against those used in phone cameras and other digital technology.

Artist Erin Taylor created the piece, as a press release says, to act “as a counterpoint to the deluge of images we encounter in our digital world and redirects our attention to the world around us. Simultaneously, Domus Oculi acts as a transitory archive of the Camp Washington neighborhood, connecting the viewer to this often overlooked city fabric.”

Noon-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through Nov. 18. 2868 Colerain Ave., Camp Washington, fotofocusbiennial.org.
