Light + Time = Form by Paulius Nosokas
by Harry / March 21, 2011


Artist Paulius Nosokas went out (in mid Winter) and bought a number of hand-held light fixtures in a variety of wattages and configurations: fluorescent, incandescent, large, small, flashlights, "to discover what might unexpectedly be revealed as my solitary performance with these fixtures was frozen in stop-motion image."

Says Nosokas, "I found, as you can see, that light isn't only a source of illumination, but a wonderful creator of form."

"As the result of my camera's shutter speed and aperture, there are arcs and solid curves, precise circles and "solid" planes; there are texts (written backwards) in mid-air; and there is, of course, the contrast of the looming darkness--and all that it implies."

"Performing/being alone with my actions--only to let the single image have the final 'word'--is a big part of what moves me in this project. Also the fact that I am using very basic materials, with only my cozy apartment for a setting, or, when I'm shooting outdoors, near-empty vistas of winter snow."

"Visual drama, it seems, can be set on a very basic stage."

"The camera has long been regarded as an "instrument" used for capturing the moment; here, I'm using it as kind of metronome--one that let's me dance [alone] with Time."
