illo friday: polar

“I will love the light for it shows me the way,
yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me
the stars.”
- Og Mandino

"the stars are insane"
a camera painting

by using the light from a mobile phone, a mirror, a dark room and a digital cam as a paintbrush tossed around the air thru an invisible canvass, i paint using light in extreme and indefensible polar positions, pleasuring the eyes with opposite extremes.. what the stars cannot shed light on, the heart can feel.

Oh, I can see the heart! That is very cool, the contrast between the blue and the black, and the movement of the line, quite an effect.
BTW, thanks for your fun comment on my blog!

Very cool ghostly effect. I watched pollack paint through a transparent canvasin a show. It was awesome effect. The act of painting is just as amazing as a finished canvas.
