Experimental Light Photos Created Using Everyday Objects

In calculated performances that explore the use of lens-based phenomena, Chicago-based artist Adam Ekberg uses primitive constructs to capture astonishing photographic images. Adam is an alchemist of sorts, transforming mundane everyday objects into ephemeral occurences. Speaking about his work he says, “Within the constructed images, I reposition specific celebratory iconography to create minor spectacles: balloons, cocktail umbrellas, disco balls, soap bubbles, and lens-based refractions. Such economy of means not only activates environments, it also prompts fascination and suggests auras.”
