Category and Expertise: Abstract, Non-Professional
Entry Description: Light Forms explore the mystery of transformation from inanimate organic matter to life. Translucent organic gels are persuaded by various physical manipulations to convert from amorphous liquid into abstract, three-dimensional, solid organic forms resembling living organisms.
The images are created using a novel technique based on spectacular visual effects displayed by translucent organic gels subjected to deformations and photographed in a polarized light. The technique combines elements of photography, biochemistry and material science.
