I woke up one morning realizing that my eyes were turned upside down. The first thing I saw was a ray of light coming from the window that looks out to the sea. The light was coming from a reflection of the morning sun on the water that was being projected on my ceiling. I could see the movement of the waves as if the sea had come into my ceiling while I was lying on my bed. As the morning sun moved up in the sky, I could see its orange rays projected on the floor of my bedroom, the intensity of the rays that were coming from the reflection of the water were still present on my sealing. My room became the upside down space of what was happening outside this window, illuminating my room and making it possible for me to see the space.

This project explores the perception of space. Visual sense enables us to recognize a space through the detection of light present in space. The visual percetion of space by the eye is complemented by the use of the camera obscura, a system consisting of a box that, by means of an opening in space, is penetrated by light, thus creating an inverted image of the exterior. The object used in order to combine both systems is a helmet. The camera obsura is placed as the visor of the helmet, acting as a viewfinder. It reveals the rays of light that create the flipped image of space that, outside of the helmet, is perceived by the visual organs. This interaction created a portable and personal system for the perception of space and the reflection of what we usually see.
