In the summer of 2020, Nathalie Brans (1968, Maastricht) hung cans in various places in the garden of Kasteel Wijlre estate. These cans were transformed into 'pinhole cameras' by means of one or more tiny pinholes. Inside the cans was a sheet of photographic paper. The cans were sealed light-tight, so that the hole acts as a lens and the surroundings are projected onto the photo paper.
The project has produced many interesting images. Images in which, as it were, the environment has been captured in an abstracted way. All cameras have now been removed and Nathalie Brans has processed and scanned the images into digital files. Subsequently, prints were made of a number of images and tapestries (two so far). The tapestries have been woven in TextielMuseum Tilburg and can be viewed in Kamer Eyck of the Koetshuis. Print in risoprint, signed by Brans, is available in limited edition for € 50 at the welcome desk in the Hedge House.
