I continue to explore the interaction of light with objects to see what patterns result and what emotional responses those patterns evoke. I would very much appreciate your comments on these photographs. What do you see? How does it make you feel?
The images started with a sphere of rutilated quartz — that is, quartz with thin fibers of titanium dioxide crystals within. As with many crystals, rutilated quartz is though to have psychic, spiritual and medicinal properties. I illuminate the sphere with the beam of a single laser and photograph the results.
