This long exposure photograph is the artist’s attempt to capture the qualities of chi or the energy of life. The contrast of the black background and the dynamic light waves are visual depictions of the transparent messages or vibes that we transmit as human beings. The energy that we emit reveals our truest feelings and although they are not spoken, they can be felt by others. This image has been animated to exemplify further the journey of these energy waves.
