BITS – Paul Hollingworth’s Artificial Anatomy II

In ALL, BITS by Julia Krolik

“Artificial Anatomy is an ongoing personal project intended to explore our understanding and perception of surface, texture and volume. Whilst part one of the project used paint to define the form of the human head and skull, part two uses light. Long exposures of a highly reflective skull and head were captured as they were illuminated by a single piece of electroluminescent wire. Lasting around 10 to 15 seconds each exposure captures the movement of the flashing wire as it passes across the surface. As the speed, frequency and position of the wire is adjusted, so too is the definition and complexity of each image. The film that forms part of this project is an edit of brief clips captured whilst capturing these images and is intended to help demonstrate the nature of the processes involved.” – Paul Hollingworth Site
