The Phosphene collection
The Phosphene Collection
Phosphene (n.) a sensation of a ring or spot of light produced by pressure on the eyeball or direct stimulation of the visual system other than by light.
Like the phosphene lights continue to glow further when we open our eyes - memories travel with us. They're imprinted on our souls, they shape the way we see. Memories and experiences guide us into the unknown, they even glow when all light has faded into darkness. Like those tiny lights in our eyes that spring to life from within.
About this piece
Phosphenes - light without light actually entering the eye.
Nostalgia - a twinge in your heart, a feeling of a place where we ache to go again.
