Liz Nielsen’s photographs can best be described as “light paintings.” In an analog color darkroom, Nielsen uses the original form of photography to record light of various wavelengths on light-sensitive material developed through chemicals. With this technique, she references the Canonical genre of still life, yet grounded within futuristic landscapes. Lost and without scale, her subjects harness the possibility of life beyond carbon forms in the presence of vibrating light.
