Forest Of Illumination

(installations of color changing light)

This project is not video, but rather an installation involving giant photographic prints and color changing lights. I photographed trees using 4×5 film, developed and scanned, then added bright hues of color to the imagery. Within a darkened space, the changing colored light reacts with the pigment on the print and results in a strange perceptual illusion of movement and depth. Below are two videos of the installation in action, along with the full series of six images.
