Bodies of Light (positive film Stylophorum)

In Corps de lumière, images of plants are revealed in their light field through electromagnetic photography.

A wall of images gradually lights up to reveal the natural energy of the living world. Consisting of 60-100 light boxes triggered by an electronic eye, Bodies of Light gradually increases in intensity creating an experience of cosmic illumination, before going back to dark until a new visitor comes in. Marie-Jeanne Musiol experienced the limits of photographic representation while working in Auschwitz in the 1990's. After experiencing such a charged site she began exploring means to directly record the luminous imprints of electromagnetic fields around biological bodies.
