A tiny planet made of thousands of dots, this hand drawn piece is the first from the “stippling” series: black dots are layed on paper, with variation in size and density, to create gradients, and various levels of gray when seen from a distance.The polygonal planet is augmented with a layer of projected light: comets, stars, moons or suns, reveal the triangular structure of the minuscule world.
About the ‘light canvas’ series
In the light canvases’ body of work, precise light beams pass over an array of rectangular structures printed on a flat surface. Darkness and illumination alternates to create an immersive three-dimensional experience transforming our sense of space. As Edward Rothstein wrote in the NY Times in 2011 in an article called “When Pictures Leap to Other Screens”, there really is a thrill to these experiments. You are amazed at the technology while being entranced by the effects. Moving images, though the familiar substance of experience, have only been created in recent centuries. They seem more real than still images, but are more artificial in themselves, even unsettling; they resemble experience but seem divorced from it, even supplanting it. And while a still image proclaims permanence, a moving image is evanescent. Whatever the medium, it also has unusual power to affect perceptions and inspire amazement”.
