  Parabola I  Parabola reflects its environment, unweaving ambient light into spectral colour, while inverting and distorting the image it creates. Parabola is a portal that plays with light and the viewer's perception, and seemingly creates a digital filter on the real world.   Colours are created on a physical level, rather than through pigment. It generates cascading iterations of colour and imagery of the space around it.

  Terminus  Terminus suspends and captures light in its final moments of existence.   Taken in an apparatus designed by the artist, these images record suspended “volumes” of light, originating from artificial sources, mediated through optical filters, and diffused into a layered device made from steel and glass.  As light is cast on to the device, rays coax their way through the individual atoms in the glass, diffusing into each successive layer. These strata unweave light rays, diffusing and revealing their dimensions, giving them a sense of volume and weight.   Influenced by the intromission theory of optics by Epicurus, whereby objects unwrap layers (or simulacra) of themselves which transmit to the eye, Terminus unravels and arranges layers of form in light. Slowed down by the frenetic motion of electrons and dissipating into oblivion, Terminus captures the last moments of glimmers of light as they scatter to nothingness.  Materials: Light, optical glasses, steel   
       
     
  Anaglyph    Anaglyph is a collection of reflective surfaces that play with the physical properties of light to create layered, stereographic imagery. Anaglyph functions as an analogue filter, distorting the subject through manipulation of wavelengths rather than digital information.   This series is comprised of mirrors and reflective surfaces that cast spectral colours, creating shifting patterns that blur the line between subject and object, viewer and environment, and physics and visual perception.   Materials: Optical Glass, ebonized wood, blackened steel.   Photographer: Devin Lund Production: Inkblot Media / Sarah Keenlyside Editing: Crook Studios  Model: Zain Burgess
       
     
  Diffusion Series   Interested in the manner in which light passes through materials, Diffusion comprises a series of objects, made to respond to the fall of light. The layered surface extrudes and suspends reflections of light, giving them a sense of volume and dimension.  These are analogue holograms, suspended in space.   Materials: Acrylic, Optical glass, steel frame
