Djerassi Day 2 - Light Rhythms

By Eathan Janney
20150701_071132_256 Day two: On my morning walk the early light through the dewy trees creates a rhythm that enamors me. I've been studying rhythms of the thrush nightingale in my research. I record a video on my walk. I run my hand through the light patterns, creating a one dimensional slice of luminosity through the complex patterns. It evokes sonic rhythms in my mind. This is some of my art for the day: light rhythms.
About the bars of light across the trees About the shadows blocking each trunk into a geometric stage for more shadow play About the depth the eye perceives through the limbs when my shadow touched itself
torched it
where was your shadow?
