notes on inspiration

Creating my dimensional photographs is such an adventure in optics. As a kid my grandfather gave me a book about optical illusions and how they are created. One of my favorites was a mirror-clad building in Japan that had appeared to have a cube of fluorescent light clinging to its side. The love of images that are hard to untangle has never left me. This small version is a wedge-shaped plexiglass form with a re-visioning of a verdant, late-summer image from a few days ago. Since the images are printed on transparent plastic, light is its very good friend, and what better way to give that light a boost than to use a mirror? It's a thought in process, and I would love to hear about your favorite tricks of the eye, too.
