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