Metal Sculpture Fiber Optic Prayer - Light Painting

Prayer of Light in the Morning


Enter the Cristalica Art Collection

Just this weekend I got the chance to Light Paint the sculptures collected by the Cristalica Glasshouse in Döbern. It was interesting to see that the shop sells glassware and in the back, you have these sculptures. Loved it!

We got to light paint about amazing 20 metal sculptures as you can see. We got to face the most popular sci-fi alien stars all onboard holding still for some portraits. Ooh yes

Since there were so many sculptures it was hard to decide what I am going to attend light painting on. The following sculpture was very different and most likely from a different artist. I could not find any information about who made it. But it was so cool I really wanted to show it off with some Light Painting.
This is the sculpture with a plain simple light painting without any extra effects.


Usually one checks the outcome of the Light Painting on the back of your Camera. Just to be sure, very often I would do at least one more shot doing what I was planning to do. Here you see just a slide difference

For this one, I was not so much satisfied with the Light painting result. I did turn the sculpture around a little bit to get more profile. Also, I decided to make a much more subtle light painting - showing more of the sculpture.


For both images, I used the standard scanner device that I always use, and of course my favorite tool the black fiber optic brush.

It's always tricky to photograph someone else's art. Here I am super happy that we were allowed all the freedom of our interpretation with light. At first, I was not sure about this but it turned out to become so much fun. The night went so fast - I could have stayed at least 2 more hours.

The Cristalica Glasshouse in Döbern. is about 1.5h south of Berlin and is very visible from the street. It's a huge glass pyramid not to miss.


I really hope you liked what you saw and this was informative and maybe also inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
