Bodies of Light

This series is part of a project that investigates the interaction between light and water. I am interested in exploring how and when these interactions occur and what they look like. I use photography and video. In this series the images appear to be 3 dimensional solids. In reality they are forms created from sunlight intersecting with water; “Bodies of Light”, whose existence is fleeting. It seems miraculous that light can take on these forms. Considerations of primitive life are evoked, as well the instantaneous nature and importance of our own lives within the dimension of time.
