If I read the documentation correctly, there is a normal direction, and an
offset.  If you keep the normal direction the same, but change the offset so
that the camera ray origin is behind the mesh instead of in front of it, does
that achieve the desired result?
I seem to recall something about being able to see the mesh used as the camera.
