Sometimes a recognizable form is suggested when a static optical entity is produced. In this case, three reactors were trained on a white stretched canvas, and daylight filled the room from an open window. Where the fields intersected, a texture was formed that resembled, to me at least, the scales on the side of a fish.

notes

an interesting combination of color field and optical striata effects

When a certain balance point was obtained, a remarkable blending of color fields and striations occurred. At times, the lines widened, forming what appeared more like ribbons of color, unlike the thinner strands that were common in past sessions. The blend of purples and greens is particularly striking to me.

This is a classic example of cross-directed motion using a multi-reactor configuration on a uniform projection surface. Simultaneously, there are currents flowing in two separate directions, creating cross-hatched patterns in both positive and negative space. It’s possible to imagine that the two patterns are interweaving, rather than just passing each other in the night.
