Conceived and born in Texas, chasing pattern and seeking light and color, Crawford records the pathways of single-color light beams to illuminate and reveal the structures of the natural world.
Light touches. It goes in and stays, or bounces off, leaving colors behind. It goes through and twists and bends. This work employs holography to record and enshrine entire wavefronts of light within a light-sensitive emulsion.
Crawford guides the reflections and refractions off familiar objects to uncover, by the patterns that emerge, insights into their nature and into how we apprehend.
