The Contact Camera – Artist Assignment 2

Often I’d be at scenic places, with an R&B song on, and the mood is just right. I would feel immersed with the view. That’s how I was in awed by New York City: Just being at Gantry Plaza at night with a Frank Ocean song on.

I’d think in that moment: Wow, if only I can remember this forever. I pulled my phone out and tried to capture the moment and it dawned upon me: The camera couldn’t capture this. There was a stark difference between the view I was seeing and that of the photo I took.

I realized it was because of the position of my view, and the field of view of my eyes instead of the flat-lens surface of the phone. If money wasn’t an issue, I would like to propose a contact lens that has photographic feature.
