"FLORA flowerscape" is the first kind of detailed landscape I have created as a light drawing. All the shapes are generated by the FLORA algorithm, which is based on my studies of animation and locomotion. I then organized the various forms in a complex composition that invites the viewer to get lost in a garden of moving lines and delicate details.
"FLORA flowerscape" is a trace of abstract motion frozen in time.
To create this image I developed a unique printing method that combines analogue photography and a laser projector. The laser "draws" with light directly onto the sensitized surface of the paper, which results in extremly thin and delicate lines.
In order to sensitize the paper I use the chemicals of platinum/palladium printing – an alternative photographic process based on noble metals that react to ultraviolet light. This process offers an exceptionally large tonal range, is very permanent and results in a non-reflective surface that looks similar to a charcoal drawing.
