The Art of Lumia has inspired my work since 1968. Creating opto-mechanical light boxes for 30years enabled exploration of the infinite properties of light. In 1998,my tools became digital. I began creating Lumia compositions using optical simulation software.
I create virtual machines inside the computer that simulate the manipulation of light over time to generate silent compositions of movement, color and transformation.
ILLUSIONS of TIME is a meditative comtemplation. The moving images you see are enhanced by imagination and exist solely within each viewer. Light is natural yet other worldly and open-ended. Light transforms in ambiguous ways, opening endless perceptual possibilities. Color is emotionally visceral. Time in motion is
unlimited in its transformational variety. ILLUSIONS of TIME was started as a series of color and motion experiments in the summer of 2011. It was rendered between October 2012 and March 2013.The music was composed in March 2013.
