Atomic
Atomic is a photographic fabric light art installation featuring collaborations with my photographic subjects and painted backdrops of nuclear bomb explosions from the 1950’s by an MGM movie scenic painter (“Wizard of Oz,” “Ben-Hur,” “Showboat”). The photographs have been printed on fabric using the dye sublimation process, resulting in an embedded image. The fabric is then attached to a wooden box frame, and pinpoint lights are placed behind in multiple and varying distances from the print, reanimating the portraits and creating a 3-dimensional work, resulting in a dynamic viewing experience. Each portrait is placed on moveable and configurable modular metal rack units.
