A peek at the early days of light discovery and images of celestial events (also explored in "PULSAR"). I imagine these images depicting light as it travels through the historical and now hypothetical "aether".
This exploration has opened our imagination into what is further possible in the field of lumia (light art). Through reflections, films and different light sources, there are many more discoveries on the horizon.

Dedrochronology is not only a mouthful, but it's the science of aging trees based on their rings. We examined this science through colorful lumia patterns reflected onto the canvas that was a beautiful tree stump. Results below.

A derivative of our initial creation Constellation, Chaotic // Order is a rearrangement of the mirrored pyramids to create new structures. Here eight pyramids circle one central pyramid that are mapped all together and individually to create a playable structure.
You can see bits of this sculpture in action from our Interactive Salon performance.

Following a successful 2017 presentation, I was primed and ready to come back with even more groundbreaking lumia projects.
This presentation picked up from where I left off and was titled "Technologically Mediated Lumia Continued." Using many of the same techniques and equipment, I focused even further on interactive qualities that bring light art techniques into the modern age.

In a follow up event to Lighting the Way, Ben Hunder, one of the Infinite Strangers, and Second Sight Visuals put on an entirely interactive showcase at Art Works Eagan.
On the visual side we had a hand held lumia station and a kinect "light shadow" for people to play with. There was also a light painting booth with our Kinetic Colors App and I controlled a projection mapped lumia sculpture.
For audio, guests were encouraged to manipulate sound through midi controllers, keyboards and other digital means.
Overall it seemed like a huge success, everyone from the youngest of guests to the oldest got in on the action.

Playing on the success of Chaotic // Order, we experimented with doing more hands-on techniques with lumia and light manipulation onto the sculpture. Metallic film, prisms, custom glass plates, and more.

In a continual exploration of light and its properties, I've built out these lightscapes (also available as metal prints). Standing around 15'x10' these static, projected forms look at color and shape to create an immersive experience.

Two layers of projection merge and blend playing host to positive and negative spaces.
The first is a front projected sphere whose contents shift through a feedback-styled dance.
The second is a reflected lumia projection harnessing colors that push through the white noise.
This style was harnessed live during the Art-Tech Experience.

A new series that explores bending light in new and unexpected ways. Colorful compositions were created and then projected out into the darkness. These fragments of light were then reassembled in camera.
Little to no post was done on these even though they look like a sci-fi space scene.

In further attempts to find ways in which light acts like a liquid, we find ourselves discovering new ways to see.
Fusilis, from the Latin "molten, soften, liquid", was the best word to describe this new series. Multiple lights of changing color come into and out of focus as they dance across the lens. We've created a photo series and also explored this phenomenon in video form as well. Slowing it down to analyze the behavior at a higher frame rate. Here we get 60s light show vibes and unique lumia patterns.
