One of the most popular artistic genres of photography is „light painting“.Formerly torches were used as light sources, today mainly devices with a variety of LEDs are in operation. A special device is a „light stick“, where 200 LEDs are mounted on a stick. These 200 pixels can glow in RGB colors and are loaded from a bitmap file. The advantage of these modern devices is that new pixels are always reloaded along a time course. With a movement of the stick therefore very attractive shapes and patterns can be displayed.
In this project, the basic movements were carried out with the device to show the very great freedom of possibilities.Of course, also letterings and logos can be displayed, which is shown by some examples.As a comparison, one picture in the old technique with the torch is given.
The series of 9 pictures was published in a picture box.Each picture is printed on high quality photo paper with 24cm at the long edge and hung with T-mounting in a passe-partout frame with 33,5×33,5cm.The picture can be taken out of the box protected by the passe-partout, in order to get no fingerprints on the picture.
In addition to the pictures an imprint, a quote on the subject and an index print is inserted in the cassette.The entire cassette has been produced in an edition of 5 pieces.The price for a whole cassette with 9 pictures is EUR 1.900,–.From one single cassette, the pictures are also sold individually for a price of EUR 290,– per piece.
