“Neural Network” acrylic on canvas with lenses and retroreflective spheres. 24×24×1.5 inches.
For more information on my work see my website:
This is under the retroreflective condition for the spherical lenses, with other ambient light sources. You can see the lenses “lighting up” (there are no lights incorporated, only lenses that manipulate the room light.) The lenses are different conditions as the light in the room changes or as a viewer moves near the painting. The overall effect is of lines and regions of light flickering in and out and moving in the piece.
I was trying to get a “biological” feel, yet keep the idea of a network that could process bits and bytes of information. The dots are actually little spherical lenses. Different lens shapes pick up the light strongly at different conditions. The lenses also create light patterns within the painting. And it was an excuse to buy a great big box of surplus optics goodies.
I will post additional images in other light conditions once I have ’em
