The art collective Kinobox Obscura is known for inventing the first 3D camera obscuras in the world. They have been building 3D artworks since 2013 in Mexico, Germany and the Baltic countries. Their latest 3D camera obscura artwork was a 3D camera obscura pedal boat which emerged in Finland, 2016. All members of the art collective have a long history in making art in different forms--be it music, fine arts or performance art.

Risto Puurunen and Juho Poesiloe Pöysti have been working together for almost two decades in different projects, most notably in Puurunen’sband Cleaning Women.

Risto plays his own unique self-made instruments made out of laundry equipment in Cleaning Women and Poesiloe has been working with the band as a VJ and live visualist. The both are also members in Russian-Finnish performance/music group The Execution of Music – Poesiloe as a singer and and Risto as a musician.
