As we slowly replace printed books with digital versions, conceptual artist and photographer Mickey Smith has made it her mission to document bound periodicals and professional journals in public libraries. Some of the volumes she has captured have already been destroyed. “I am struck by the physical mass of knowledge and the tenuousness of printed work as it fades from public consciousness,” says Smith.
Who would have imagined that humble filter samples could used to create such a vivacious, cheerful work of art? Artist Jessica Eaton’s attempts to construct fictional rainbows yielded Filter Samples. “Hundreds of swatches from Lee Filters sample packs were arranged on the window, by spectral wave transmission, to turn my living room into a ROYGBIV light box,” says Eaton.
