Investigating light and perception:
In what is seen here, the photo is the art, the end result. The construct in the photo is something else entirely, with many possible configurations. It is designed to be photographed. The magic emanates from the arrangement, the lighting, and the sense of motion.
I’m calling it “abstract constructionism” because that’s exactly what it is — even though the term doesn’t show up when I Google it.
Depending on point of view and direction and intensity of light source (direct sunlight thru a window being my favorite), these tiny constructions take on an ever-changing appearance, a mesmerizing contrast of brilliant and muted colors, of sharp edges and soft shapes.
Infinite composition, groupings, and optical illusions are conducive to daydream, meditation, and creative thought.
