Ambient Camera

Ambient Camera is a compilation of short videos made of photographs that were taken with a camera controlled by a geiger counter.
In this work, the camera releases the shutter whenever the geiger counter detects radiation.
Thus, these photographs are taken not by a person´s will but by an environmental factor.
I have made several short movies by arranging these photographs at a consistent frame rate, similar to a slideshow.
The more frequent radiation is detected, the smoother the movie will be.
From these movies we can compare how often radiation is detected among different locations.
