DESCRIPTION

Archival pigment print | 2019

Reverse Plasma Formation was born as an investigation of opposing forces and the duality of positive and negative. Over a couple of weeks in March of 2017 I shot a series of images of the Aurora Borealis in the skies over Iceland. Though a beautiful and other worldly experience, the aurora is a highly documented phenomenon globally. The photosIi returned with left me wanting more. Months later in an attempt to move forward in this concept, I began to question what the opposite of an Aurora would be. The question that began as a random thought experiment became a scientific inquiry, and it worked. I began experimenting with negating the images i had taken of the aurora, and the psychedelic and surreal landscapes of this series began to come forward. Eventually in April of 2018, with the series beginning to take shape, I headed to Alaska to shoot additional photos of the phenomena. The result of this process is something I’m very proud of.
