These circular chambers made outside, work on the principle of a camera obscura. The interiors are dark, the entrance being from a door or curved passageway, the floor or viewing surface is white, and there is a small aperture or lens in the ceiling or wall. Images of clouds, branches, waves, landscape, are thus projected inside. These cloud chambers are still, silent, meditative and mysterious spaces. Chris Drury, Coppice Cloud Chamber, 1998 http://www.chrisdrury.co.uk/home.htm
