Paranthetics is a study of light, color, and motion; it is a visualization of their relationship. Images are taken with a lensless camera which record light refracted between a specific point and the camera itself and this light takes the form of color and shape. The outcome shows a difference between what is seen and what is physically there. Seemingly, there is a reality and another reality. Our muscle memory, our eyes, our emotions and general “understanding” of the world fills in any void for us. Meditating on that idea, I created neon and placed it back into the image, back into the scene. The neon is what my muscle memory, my eyes, emotions, and my general “understanding of the world fills in the space between these two points.
