Newton Ring 20, 2013

Digital C-Print, Dimensions Variable


Newton Rings are a light phenomena discovered by Isaac Newton. They are circular rainbow patterns created by the reflection of light between two surfaces pressed together. Commonly seen in darkroom printing as a mistake to be edited out, in my Newton Rings series I isolate and enlarge the rings. I create the rings in my scanner with negatives that have poor exposures. Through this process the negatives have a second life, one that shows the otherworldly materiality that the negative has within itself.
