LIGHT CREATURE

1
ARTIST STATEMENT
LIGHT CREATURE
-FLORIAN MA

Creating elegant, refined abstract photo inspired by the colour temperature and the
slight variations of light changing around the environment. Using difference bulb
with difference transparent lens to create “Living Light Creature “ floating in
positive and negative space. Light is the defining formal element and emotional
conduit in Florianʼs work.

Working with light, both the ungovernable daylight and the more controllable
sources of artificial light, is essential to Florian's activity.

In the current work displaying the progression of Florian formal and conceptual
ideas of using light to create a tangible presence of deeply felt emotion from soft
looking wall big photo.

I find light is incredible a power tool to create a wide range of mood and emotions to
change your mood base on laying 3 keys elements light. Ambient light,focal light
and decorative light. It can make room more romantic , more dramatics ,more
relaxing ....There is a spiritual quality and a kind of interactive experience of how to
use light to interacting with you .

Doing this experience to find out the light in it self can be. I embrace a more
subjective stance that accepts ambiguity and impermanence as an approach to the
creative process.

“One might not think of light as a matter of fact, but i do. And it is , as i said, as plain
and open and direct an art as you will ever find.”

-Dan Flavin, 1987

And lets see what Iʼve discovered.

JELLYFISH
Why choosing Jellyfish ?

Jellyfish (also known as sea jellies) are free-swimming members of the phylum Cnidaria. Jellyfish
are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea.

I selected Jellyfish to be the major subject because they are similar with the Light Creature i did.
The following i go through their living environment, shape, movment, colour and difference types
of jellyfish , to show the relationship and interest of light creature.

JELLYFISH
SHAPE

Probably to know most familiar with the classic umbrella-shaped jelly, trailing its tentacles as it
gently pulses through the water.

As we know that focusing the object in difference distance is related to the focal length . Out focus
object is becoming to a shape that we cant identify.

JELLYFISH
MOVEMENT
jellies possess an impressive repertoire of swimming styles—some pulse peacefully like living lava
lamps. Some donʼt have tentacles at all but they can really show aesthetic delights of swimming
movement.

Because they are very hard to study in the water - you catch them in a net and they just
turn into nothing. The same as lighting is never catchable.

JELLYFISH
COLOUR

In natural conditions, many of the jellies


are so transparent that they can be
almost impossible to see.Jellyfish are
commonly displayed in blue background
with the animals illuminated by side
lighting to produce a high contrast effect.

Osamu Shimomura and Frank Johnson at the University of Princeton, intrigued by the ability of
Aequorea victoria to glow green when disturbed, set out to isolate the proteins responsible. They
succeeded in isolation two proteins, a blue luminescent protein they named aequorin and another
green protein that glowed when exposed to UV light. In the 1970's Osamu Shimomura studied the
green protein, later known as GFP, and found that unlike aequorin GFP did not need a supply of
energy to glow.

Light Creature is not a light source . They born form light reflection ,refraction, focusing . so i
create creature by a setup as the photo

JELLYFISH
SHAPE

Alien as it looks, a jellyʼs soft shape is perfectly adapted to its environment. The
animalʼs thin skin stretches over a body thatʼs more than 95% water (no bones
or shells to weigh it down)

encounter the undulating colors and translucence of jellies and innovative artwork that
nature's living forms inspire.

JELLYFISH
SKIN

Delicacy of creating onion skin of translucent layers that elicits metaphors for the body of
jellyfish to compositions that though abstract contain veiled reference to the behavior of
jellyfish living in the ocean.

JELLYFISH
DIFFERENCE TYPES
Between researching of difference of Jellyfish. i try to recode how the Light Creature can be created by
specific glasses , crystal , lens, lamp. Here i make a comparison sheet to defining their shape

JELLYFISH
LIVING ENVIRONMENT

Jellyfish also have ocelli that cannot form images, but are sensitive to light; the
jellyfish can use these to determine up from down, basing its judgement on sunlight
shining on the surface of the water.

15
PROCESS OF IMAGE MAKING

Studio based setup to create light creature in the dark space with specific lighting tools .

LENS AND GLASS COLLECTION

To use difference type of lens , glasses to create the type of light creature (jellyfish), and
the space lighting effect.

16
LIGHT SOURCE

To use difference bulb to be the light source to create a wide range of mood and emotions
laying 3 keys elements light.

1. ambient light - provide general for the space . it evenly throughout the space
2. focal light - visual focal of working area , main for creating light creature
3. decorative light - like a human touch to fill full the space

17
PROCESS
SETUP

Basically , light creature is create by a light source go through the lens or with difference
glasses to project the light on the white paper

18
PROCESS
ENVIRONMENT SETUP
Install the 2 world light to fill full the space. they choose in difference color temperature.when the
light combining will create harmonize space. and this is the base of the light creature will living in .
