While Bignia Wehrli is walking through the outskirts of the city of Shenzhen (China), she wears a hat that was turned into a pinhole camera and records her walks. Through the use of a strong filter, only the light of the sun falls as a small point on the negative inside the hat and blackens it. Each path creates a drawing that results from the constantly changing relationship between head and sun.
