For these coloured photograms I started from sheet-music of John Cage.

 

He copied the stars of the galaxy on transparencies, then he covered his ensemble staves with it. By this act music was set.
I did it the other way around and started out from his accidental sheet-music and copied it again on transparencies which I used to make photograms.

 

Besides that I made several box camera's with more than 70 lenses. The structure is set from the music, I opened holes to create new rhythms and colours.

 

This work was commissioned by Concertgebouw Bruges (B)
