Playing With Light

Recently, I have been interested in light and the way it dances. Take a peek at this unedited video I created of light from a prism, dancing off of a wall.

I like the anticipation of the spectrum coming and going. You will need QuickTime to view this small .avi movie.

I have also experimented with light from another source, moving cars. Below are a couple of examples of images I have taken in this "Moving Car Series," and hope to, someday, use this material in a composite larger work.

Just over a year ago, I met artist LED and Fiber Optic Electronic artist William Anhang. In one of his artworks, he uses 8,000 optic fibers!

Browse his site. There is much to view, and he has many videos of his works. This is an artist who really understands light and its uses.

I have been inspired to write this blog, sharing my fascination with light, as the days are becoming noticeably shorter --heralding the short, dark, November and December days that are just around the corner. But I always rejoice in the Winter Soltice, forecasting the gradual lightening of my spirit and the promise of warmer weather to come.
