Out of The Blue

Taming Light #5

Continuing my experiments to control the shapes and refraction patterns, and to create small 'scenes'. Here I concentrated on one colour and attempted a flight of 'optical' birds. Of course you may visualize something completely different.

 

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.
