The light box is made with medium format glass slides, each of them has 3 layers whose images are overlapped, creating a surreal landscape view. The slide projector is used for looking in its inside. Three slides are placed behind the lens, but their thickness block the light/projection to come out, creating the inverse effect of looking inside, flashing and pointing a sort of three-dimensional miniature. I designed an octagonal carousel, the viewer can have a look inside the lens on 8 different groups of 3 overlapped slides
The found slides depict the journeys of English through Italian sightseeing.
