A room with a window in a warehouse positioned above a narrow street in Fort Kochi was turned into a walk-in camera obscura. A hole carved in the window projected an image of the view overlooking the window on the opposite wall.

Once inside the room, viewers were invited to take photographs by directly exposing instant film, thus making abstract images of a moving pinhole image. Each instant film was packed in tin foil with a flap over the negative side acting as the ‘shutter.’ Viewers placed the film on parts of the projected image of the view outside, released and closed its flap to make the image, which was then developed in a makeshift darkroom inside the room itself.
