The phenomenon of dispersion, wherein light of varying wavelengths diverges by distinct degrees during refraction, culminates in the separation of white light into its constituent colors—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet—each manifesting a nuanced angle of refraction. This natural spectacle finds its epitome in the iconic formation of the rainbow, where sunlight, penetrating a raindrop, undergoes refraction upon transitioning from air to the denser medium of water, initiating a graceful arc within the droplet.

My artistic journey commenced with the intention of orchestrating a diverse array of rainbows and light dispersion phenomena. Employing a microscope camera and an assortment of optical glass, I meticulously capture these ethereal refractions at their microcosmic dimensions. As light traverses into denser mediums at an oblique angle, its velocity modulation precipitates the bending, or redirection, of the light wavefront—a captivating phenomenon we perceive as refraction. The resultant images serve as tangible manifestations of these empirical explorations.
