Light Spheres

These are part of an ongoing series of photographs, in which I capture light through a tiny glass bead on the front (selfie) lens of a smart phone. I am merely extending the lens of the camera through an additional piece of glass, but the resulting blurry spheres are ambiguous, intriguing, and abstract. Additionally, the specificity of the tool, i.e., a tiny glass bead that fits only on the selfie lens, engages my interest in how we filter our lives through these digital extensions of our brain, ultimately altering our experiences, and perhaps distorting our perception of the world.
