Afterimage, 2009 is a silent motion study of light strikes examining the limits of human vision and the perceptual phenomenon persistence of vision. The recorded image allows us to see things we cannot otherwise discern—how the lines of lightning define and redefine themselves on charged trajectories, remembering their own pathways a second after the first strike. It is hard for us to grasp the fact of the recorded image since it carries with it an afterimage that is an artifact of our sight. The camera and eye are responsible for separate images within the piece that commingle in the brain, reminding us that our vision always marries the interpretation from the mind’s eye with exterior stimuli. Historic motion studies were used to clarify physical phenomena, but here they are turned inward to the perceptual processes that are our bridge to the physical world.
