Inside the cube

Two Italian photographers - Andrea Pizzini and Christian Martinelli - had a burst of inspiration during their visit to a camera fair in Beijing a few years ago. That swiftly led to the quite farfetched development of a special photographic system whereby a recorded image is converted into a mystical apparition. It involves a large, inhabitable cube, a mega-sized lens, a very particular type of paper, and several days of toil. Equally spectacularly, this Cube can be disassembled for transport.
