At this scale you can just put a digital camera inside to capture the projection? Sort of like through the viewfinder photography, just inside and slightly more crazy.

This has me wondering how hard it would be to construct a portable giant box that you could attach a lens and bellows to.

I was very disappointed when I saw him sliding a lens/bellow panel in place rather than it being a pinhole or glass lens in the side of the shipping crate where the graphics indicate it would be. False advertising!

So continues the tradition of the giant camera (obscura):

You can do this in any room with a window, a sheet of aluminum foil with a pinhole in it, and a clear opposite wall and some thumb tacks. Of course, with that set up, you only get one view! As a user of large cameras, I admire his dedication.
