Original FLORA light drawings by Philipp Artus

“The FLORA light drawings are traces of abstract motion frozen in time. All the shapes are generated by the FLORA algorithm which is based on my studies of animation and locomotion. To create these light drawings I developed a unique printing method that combines analogue photography and a laser projector. The laser "draws" with light directly onto the sensitized surface of the paper, which results in extremly thin and delicate lines.
In order to sensitize the paper I use the chemicals of platinum/palladium printing – an alternative photographic process based on noble metals that react to ultraviolet light. This process offers an exceptionally large tonal range, is very permanent and results in a non-reflective surface that looks similar to a charcoal drawing.”
