DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Light Palettes:

The word photography, translated from ancient Greek, literally means "drawing with light." This essence of film-based photography is rooted in its photochemical process, unlike the digital image that is represented by tiny little dots known as pixels. Acknowledging the inherent difference between film and digital image renditions, Light Palettes demonstrates a shared approach to producing colors with light.

In this series, colored shapes are first created on a computer. The desired graphic patterns, displayed by an LCD monitor, are then captured on color reversal film. Through multiple exposures the "additive color mixing" is achieved, allowing light with various wavelengths to blend together. This results in different colors in the overlapping sections of the shapes.

In Light Palettes, the additive color mixing is the common ground between film and digital image renditions. Through photographing an LCD monitor, the representation of an image is transformed from digital to film, which is the reverse process of digitizing. This series examines what constitutes a photograph, as well as the change of meaning in photographic image making.
