Liz Nielsen – Force Fields

Posted by Fabio 9 March 2018

The analog color darkroom is a magical place where a pitch-black environment allows only the vision of the mind’s eye. There, and without the use of a camera, Liz Nielsen creates unique photograms by building her own negatives and ‘painting with light’.

The way she works in the darkroom is like a musical performance whereby, mixing colors and harmonies, Nielsen creates new gradients. Working with pure color and the edges of each color within the spectrum, Nielsen adds and subtracts wavelengths, playing with diffusion and refraction.
