Microscopic Lifeforms of Light
Twisting Light #8 Continuing the experiments on the refraction patterns of light made with formed and shaped plastic materials. With this one I seem to have created two microscopic creatures. The top one looks to me like a 'daphnia' or 'water flea' while the bottom one appears to have structure reminiscent of the segmented body of a 'louse' or similar parasite. Ooh.. I've gone all itchy. Pleasant dreams. ;-))
These images are analog formed directly on to 35mm negative film by the refraction pattern of light passing through a formed plastic shape. The resulting print has been scanned for flickr. Minor adjustments have been made with Picasa2.
When seen large, small rainbow patterns are evident and also difraction patterns and rings.
