Switched Off

In the series Luminant Point Arrays Stephan Tillmans shows us abstract forms of something we don’t see that often anymore. A phenomena of light that was very common in the late 20th century. He pointed his camera at different old tube televisions. The variation of abstractions we see in his work come about when a television is switched off. Due to the duration of the on-time of each television we see different hypnotic figures of light. Almost dancing in front of us. But only for a second. Stephan has captured these figures and made it into art.
