Thought Forms – Light Sculptures by James Nizam

Shard of Light , 2011

Thought Form (Tetrahedron), 2011

Beautiful light sculptures by James Nizam, made using sunlight and mirrors:

“Nizam, who has worked on various projects in abandoned houses, shot the pictures in a vacant property in Delta, Canada, after negotiating access from the local government. For the Shard of Light image, he cut a one-inch wide slit from floor to ceiling through the main room the house, and diagonally across the veiling from the corner for several feet; at midday the sun moved into alignment with the cut, concentrating a perfect shard of light that he documented with a large format camera.”

“For Thought Forms […] he took a west-facing room and covered up the window with a bling, then cut a small hole in it to let in the light. […] By locating an aperture to the far left of the window I focused the sunlight into a beam that landed roughly in the centre of the room. […] The aperture focused the sunlight into a beam giving me a line segment of the sorts; using small mirrors mounted to a ball joint, I could redirect this line segment to another point in the room” (Click here to read full article from the British Journal of Photography.)
