Adagio / 2012 / Terry Long 

This mandala was inspired by the first movement of Ralph Vaughan Williams “Six Studies in English Folksong” and was created with several different LED lights held in both hands. The camera was in a fixed position throughout the 30 second exposure in a blacked out studio while the music was playing. The  interweaving of the design was achieved by moving forwards and backwards while drawing with the lights in a gestural manner. The post production was produced in Photoshop by a cut and paste technique, with some additional changes to colour and tonal values.
