The Beat Effect, 2013

The project explores a hidden side of light created by fluorescent light, which is not normally perceivable for the naked eye.
The human eye and its brain interface, the human visual system, can process 10 to 12 separate images per second. The visual information that exceeds this helps to smooth out and join images, color and movements. This is known from the 24 fps (frames per second) in modern movie standards. One of the most common light sources in today’s world comes from fluorescent light tubes which operates under a high and non visible frequency. It means that what we see as a constant light actually consists of a continuous flicker including shift in the color temperature of light.
Using fast exposure, a series of photographs have been produces, reveling these patterns and shift in color. The photographs have been remounted back on to the light tubes from which they originated.
