Diffraction Limited was created for the exhibition ‘After the Crash’ is part of a pan-European art and science initiative involving universities and museums across ten countries.
For this body of work Thymann has taken a scientific approach to photography and created a series of portraits and abstracts images using diffraction-limited laser light. The long exposures record a visual trail of prolonged time and the photograph documents and stores the movement. By using the camera as a recording device, Thymann creates images that can only exist when viewed through his lens.
A methodical approach to the technical elements of the project was taken and Thymann applies the precise lighting approach to men, women and abstracts. Four selected pieces in 70×52.5cm remainder 21.65×16.24cm.
