Paul Malone : Movies : Spectral Spectrum 01

'Spectral Spectrum 01'. Still from movie. 2017

This movie is a real time observation of the transit of the Sun across the bevel of a mirror. In doing so it traverses the whole spectrum of light from blue to red. At the mid-point the light flares inside the lens to produce 4 red spots. At the end of the movie an extra flare occurs to produce a green arc. The movie was filmed in my mothers house with its heavily embossed wallpaper. This, and the vocalised music I made for the movie, enhances the mood of an unseen presence within the procession of colour.
