About

Light & photo-chemistry collide & conspire to energize 12 different architectural backdrops, suspending and dissolving celluloid matter into a luminosity reminiscent of Mark Rothko’s radiant field paintings.

 

The original film was shot on super-8mm film in Paris, Norway, Toronto, Wyoming, Colorado, Chicago, Cincinnati, Napa Valley & southern and northern California between 1983 and 2012,  and  then painstakingly hand-processed.  De Luce 2:  Architectura is the second film in the artist's "De Luce" (On Light) series that was inspired by this medieval text:

 

“In the beginning of time, light drew out matter, along with itself, into a mass as great as the fabric of the world.”

– Robert Grosseteste (1170-1253)
