视网膜 (A Net to Catch the Light)

2016, 7 minutes, Color & B&W, Sound, Hand-processed 16mm film and HD video

An orb-weaver spins its web, captures prey, and filters light. How does other light get filtered or created? Digitally and energetically, light and its origins drive our circadian rhythms, our internal clocks, and affect the retina. Blue light, in the realm of 400 to 500 nanometers, has become increasingly pervasive, just as our light sources have homogenized.

How does this ownership of the eye, of light, of the world, unwind us?
