Whirligigs of Light

Whirligig One / LED light drawing / 2014 / Terry Long

I remember being fascinated by whirligigs when I was very young. They were both magical and mesmerizing to me. I created Whirligig One by drawing with twenty four LED lights in the air, and the design was used to make up the eight sections of the finished piece. The drawing stage was recorded on my tripod mounted Nikon D700 digital SLR camera, with a Tokina SD 17-35 f4 FX lens, and the post production was achieved with photoshop. Whirligigs still hold a fascination for me, and remind me of some of the mandalas that I have seen, plus I find them therapeutic to watch.
