Oceanic Dreaming: Light Painting

With guidance from master light painter Peter SolnessI dance in the dark and paint with light to capture with a camera the otherwise invisible choreography.
I call this Oceanic Dreaming because for me the forms evolve from what the artist Len Lyedescribes as "the workings of the 'Old Brain' and genetic memory - that is, he saw the doodle as an intuitive visualisation of knowledge..." For me light painting is tracing and making visible body knowledge of relationships.

2017 Oceanic Dreaming:
Protea Dance

Size variable.

I dance in the dark with a light around a Protea flower, and capture the movement with my camera set to 30 seconds exposure and a narrow aperture.

The family Proteaceae to which Proteas belong is an ancient one among angiosperms. Evidence from pollen fossils suggests Proteaceae ancestors grew in Gondwana, in the Upper Cretaceous, 75-80 million years ago. The Proteaceae are divided into two subfamilies: the Proteoideae, best represented in southern Africa, and the Grevilleoideae, concentrated in Australia and South America and the other smaller segments of Gondwana that are now part of eastern Asia. Africa shares only one genus with Madagascar, whereas South America and Australia share many common genera - this indicates they separated from Africa before they separated from each other.
