Martin Belger | The world's first transparent pinhole X-ray camera
"Using the Divine Proportion camera, Martin Belger will photograph X-rays from inside a particle accelerator. The Divine Proportion camera is a lead glass encased pinhole camera, specifically designed to capture on film the scatter from the impact of a high intensity X-ray beam on sculptures representing creation and destruction. The sculptures will be selected based on iconic figures of creation and destruction from the region in which the particle accelerator is located."
