Water Planet


Color light painting by Daniel Conrad, completed May, 2011

                Artist�s comments:

The composition is like the geological fault called a 'graben', when land falls between two faults forming a grave-like structure. The colors flow into the central area like water filling every geological crack in the earth.

LEDs used in this piece are diffused using microlens material, a promising experimantal method.

Colors in the upper and lower zones are controlled by independent fading circuits, and they have different sets of source colors, or gamuts. The lower zone uses a customary RGB gamut, but the upper zone uses violet, amber, and cyan.
