A Gathering of Light
Taming Light #1
The next phase in the quest to control light refraction patterns. Working with plastics in the same way as the 'Twisting Light' Set, I try to make a complete composition working within the confines of a 35mm film frame size by carefully placing and positioning the various elements and components into the plastic as it is hardening.
I thought this looked like a shoal of 'puffer fish' hiding in green coral, but you may see other things. :-)
For new viewers: these are analog images formed directly on to film without the use of a camera lens (in the same way as a photogram), of the refraction patterns of light passing through formed and shaped plastics. Normally a b/w image, colour has
been added directly into the plastic. The fine detail of the diffraction patterns and the rainbow colours can be seen when viewed large.
