Monday art house: a picture of a bridge

This is a photo of the Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol, UK. It's a 6-month time-lapse image taken with a pinhole camera.

Several years ago I caught a program of short films made with pinhole cameras: no lenses, hand-cranked film, black-and-white photography, then most of them optically printed so that each exposure lasted longer than 1/24 sec. I can't recall the artists' names, though. I also can't recall if I saw it at Bumbershoot, the Grand Illusion, or the International House. Since Google and Wikipedia are doing me no good in helping me find any of these filmmakers, I suspect it must have been sometime in the '90s out in Seattle.
