Light Play

31 Jan

This post contains a new picture – a mediation on light, the interaction of the X-ray light with visible light. It is composed of a Chest X-ray of a small boy from Papua New Guinea who died from an overwhelming infection with tuberculosis. The base image is from a play of light on a wall thrown from the sun overhead passing through green glass. I have lifted a segment from that and manipulated it to produce a wandering blue and white evanescence passing across the image; evoking the rising of the spirit. A strong pattern of arrow-heads and ladder-like shapes are derived from a Papuan Tapas design, thus linking with the Papuan boy, it is the only “solid” component in the piece.


Chest 43; Light Play

This image reminds me that we do not live for the destination but for the journey itself
