The phenomenon of dispersion, wherein light of varying wavelengths refracts by differing degrees, leading to the separation of white light into its constituent colors—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet—is a well-documented occurrence. Its most iconic manifestation is the formation of the rainbow, wherein sunlight, upon entering a raindrop, undergoes refraction transitioning from air to the denser medium of water, consequently bending and separating its spectral components.

Motivated by a desire to delve into the intricacies of rainbow formation and light dispersion, I embarked on a project employing a microscope camera and various glass optics to capture these phenomena at the micro-level. As light penetrates denser mediums at oblique angles, its speed alteration results in the bending of its wavefront, a phenomenon we perceive as refraction.

The images produced through these experimental endeavors serve as tangible outcomes of my exploration. Expanding on this endeavor, I am elevating my artistic expression by crafting wall sculptures that emulate these refracted lights. At its core, my art is an exploration of the boundless possibilities inherent in light and color, drawing inspiration from scientific principles of optics and color theory.
