Bending Light #78
For new viewers: these 'Refractographs' are analogue images of the refraction patterns of a single beam of light passing through various transparent objects. This is a double refraction or recursive pattern - it is formed by passing the refraction pattern of one of my coloured plastic creations through a piece of glassware to make another, more complex pattern.The image is captured directly on to 35mm film, no camera lens is used ( this is a photogram using film instead of photographic paper), the transparent object replaces the lens. The tangled fragmented background consists of complex diffraction patterns. This is an analogue image and has not been computer generated.
