PAINTING WITH LIGHT
consists of images produced by moving light.
Techniques include re-filming slides in an animation fashion.
Original slides are time-exposure images of color-filtered light.
The experiment questions
whether light can be controlled
in a manner similar to that of the painter-artist.
The use of an optical printed allows some manipulation
or extension of certain scenes.
Also, unmasked negative printing is intercut to
strengthen the 'painting' effect.
