Building a Picture

BY AIDEN CELESTE
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 24, 2013

As a child, Aiden Celeste had always wanted to be an architect, but his life drove him to the field of research art. He discusses the process, theory, and execution of what he calls "building a picture" -- through the oculus of a camera obscura, he finds himself in a unique and wonderful otherworld. The results of his exploits are conjoined and overlapped to form something greater than a singular piece.
