It’s winter. It’s cold. Going outside can get to be a chore. If you’re eager to go outside and do things, but just don’t have the heart to layer up and trek around, and you’re currently moping, pick through your recycling for cardboard, grab some tape and black trash bags and ask your fav (maybe even your valentine?!) to help you cover the windows, nooks and crannies in one room of your home, making the room light tight. Now, grab a pair of scissors and cut a small hole as close to the center of one window and sit back in awe. Now you know what it would be like to sit inside a camera.
First, lock your doors, kill the lights and block the windows with cardboard as though you are expecting visitors.
Next, using your sharp implements of cutting (I.E. scissors, knife or claws in our case), gouge a hole somewhere in the dead off-center of your cardboard curtain.
And that’s it! The sunlight entering through the aperture in your cardboard will now project an inverted image of the treacherous outdoor realm onto your dark walls, floors and ceiling.
