I’m working on an installation involving a bright white light seeping out from behind a thin tear in the black wall. I like how I am aware that it is just a wall, but the effect created makes it feel like there is another space exterior to the wall… While working and observing the installation I had to pause to take a self portrait with the strange glow.
This photograph was not digitally altered in any way. While hiking around the Lehigh Gorge State Park I noticed a strange color in the water. The way the sun was hitting the green trees on the hill and reflecting off this river created a really weird yellow glow. Even to the naked eye it felt unreal.
The supermoon eclipse was a truly beautiful experience. The last time this occurred I was’t even yet born, and the next time it happens again won’t be until 2033… I got lucky and had clear skies so I set up a tripod, 200mm lens, 2x teleconverter and took exposures all night. Here are some of my shots edited into one image.
Paul Friedlander, Unknown Title and Date
Friedlander is a studied physicist turned kinetic artist, and an inspiration to my work. He is/was a professor at Cambridge but also found a way into art-making. His work can fill a giant room, or be held in your hand. The installation depicted here was created by spinning strings really quickly while projecting light onto them. Strange moving but somewhat static shapes fill the space around you. See more at http://www.paulfriedlander.com/
