With the assistance of her children, artist Alexandra Calloway took photos of moving light sources and used different exposure times for each photo. The result is captured light that moves across each image. (See if you can guess which images used glow sticks, a Firefly light toy and different colored LED lights.) Calloway says the process is very intuitive and surprising in how the different elements and variables of each photo come together.
This exhibit is a little darker and way more abstract than we’ve seen at Kefa recently, but the photos offer a look of life from a different perspective. Their energy is a little moodier but brightened with almost a celestial quality as the light dances through each photo and throughout Silver Spring’s most adorably yellow gallery. It’s perfectly Halloweeny and on display until November 15th.
Go check out the opening reception this Friday night, October 24th at Kefa Cafe.
