Paul Friedlander - Tallin Light Biennale

Paul Friedlander - Handheld Light Art

Paul Friedlanders (un)Illuminated sculpture

Paul  creates incredible Illuminated artworks that really have to be seen to be believed. You would be forgiven to think, based on the first two images, that his work is nothing more than CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) but in reality they are a beautiful collision between science and art.

In fact the way he constructs his kinetic light sculptures is really quite simple. Friedlander projects white light onto rapidly spinning/rotating string. This causes the vibrating string to appear invisible, and the white light becomes visible in the most magical of ways.
