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.

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.

Two reactive systems were positioned so that they just barely touched each other on their margins. A stream of light escaped from one display into the other, and the two became united, sharing the bridge as if it was a single entity. The connective tissue even became rope-like, as if it was a lifeline swinging between two cores of light.

intersecting color field and striata effects on a solid white surface

This work is the result of an experiment in which two separately configured optical field reactions are evolving on the same uniform white surface. The separate fields can be identified visually by their formal characteristics: one is what I call a “color-field” reaction, and the other creating graphical striation effects. I like the way that the fields interact, appearing to join forces at times and even sharing the real estate equitably.

in this experiment, the red and blue component plugs were reversed, causing some seizure hazard

without post-processing, there is a flicker in some regions indicating multiple interleaved reactions
