Working with a wide range of media, Hanno Otten examines questions relating to perception and visual thinking. One area he has explored is light and colour as a property of light. Produced without a camera, the abstractions are nothing but colour fixed on photo-sensitive paper. In 1998 Otten began applying this practice to the medium of film and experimenting with digital image generation. This is what led to the creation of Light 1 (2021), a sequence of colours in a changing rhythm.
