Abstract 3D Glass Paintings

  I paint abstract compositions on multiple layers of glass (up to 20) which are made separately and then stacked to produce a foot thick painting/sculpture. When the Sun goes through the different layers of glass paint, it mixes the colors dynamically, and the results change with the angle and intensity of the sunlight. Some moments are very special in terms of light and deserve a photograph. The painting is placed by the window and the photographs are taken when the Sun is in the right position. The glass panels can be moved forwards and backwards, flipped horizontally and vertically, and spaced individually...

Making A Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscopes inject symmetry into any image. Symmetry is inherent beauty. Real kaleidoscopes unfold an image using a mirrored polygon running alongside the barrel. The unfolded image is then collected back together by a lens placed after the mirrors. This can be repeated only a couple of times due to the loss of light caused by the length of the kaleidoscope versus its width.   Our digital kaleidoscopes are very similar to the real ones. An initial image is unfolded and rotated multiple times allowing the emergence of new patterns and a superstructure. Each unfolding of the image increases its size...
