Untitled, 2019/2020, Kirlian photography on analogue photo paper, unique pieces, 30 x 24 cm

In this project I continued with the research of how the human body creates light and developed the idea of using the technique of Kirlian photography by capturing the electrical discharges of my own finger tips onto a contact print. While being connected to a high-voltage source I touch the sensitive surface of the paper so the energy unloads displaying the process as an image. A bright, aura like halo describes the position of my finger creating a strong black and white contrast to the pitch-dark background. In its essence these pieces reveal a certain identity of light and conserve the individuality of each movement and the traces they leave behind. The unseen and imperceivable happening, lead to a mystic and secretive outcome further strengthening my fascination with light.
