In the Lumen series of projects the topic of investigation is light itself.  It is a lifetime project in which various aspects of light are explored in separate bodies of work. My aim is to let light reveal itself.

ôThe photogram makerĺs problem has nothing to do with interpreting the world, but rather with the formation of abstractions. 
Objects are chosen for their light-modulating characteristic: their reality and significance disappear.  The logical end point of the photogram is the reduction of photography to the light-recording property of silver salts.  To the cameraman this is what Malevitchĺs White on White is to the painter.ö

Refraction is the fourth gallery in the Lumen series.  This work resulted from an experimental investigation into the refraction of sunlight through glass using sunlight and photographic silver gelatin paper.

Many effects of light occurred simultaneously, but the most prominent was the refraction of light through the various glass objects.
I sought to document and interpret purely formal qualities of light.  Hidden lines and curves and other new Ĺlight objectsĺ were revealed by strong sunlight. Resulting images are left as negatives resembling X Rays, a symbolic gesture towards the interaction of science and art.
Light revealed the invisible.
