Artist's Reception- Phosphene Series: Hand Painted Polaroid Emulsion Lifts by Shannon Amidon
Good Karma
37 South First Street
San Jose, CA

Phosphene is an entoptic phenomenon characterized by the experience of seeing light without light actually entering the eye. Flashes of light, often caused by rubbing the closed eyes. These images were created by hand painting blank 35mm slides. Polaroid pull-a-part prints were created using a vintage slide printer. The prints were boiled in water and the emulsion was carefully removed and placed onto watercolor paper. Each emulsion print is hand manipulated and one of a kind.
