An experimental investigation into the refraction of sunlight through glass using sunlight and silver gelatin paper. This method of photography resembles the first photographic exposures. Photograms (camera-less pictures) are an essential aspect of the history of photography. Practitioners include Fox Talbot (the first silver halide photograms),
Man Ray (Rayograms) and Moholy-Nagy.
I sought to document and interpret purely formal qualities of light. Hidden lines and curves and other new ‘light objects’ were revealed by strong sunlight.
The resulting images are left as negatives resembling X Rays, a symbolic gesture towards the interaction of science and art.
Light revealed the invisible.
