Cohen Gallery Exhibit: Dispersion, an installation by Daniel Clayman

June 19, 2014

Light passing through any transparent material is assigned an Abbe Value, a mathematical number expressing how much light is dispersed upon passing through a material with a particular refractive index. Working with the Abbe Value and the ensuing quality of light, Dispersion becomes three things at once: a lens projecting and bending light, a filter changing the color and pattern and an object that redefines the space through its towering presence. As the light shines through the antique glass a stage set is born. 

Dappled light, projected by the object, becomes a device to capture a moment, in particular, summer sun filtering through trees.
