Phantom Glimmer

About PHANTOM GLIMMER

Spirit photography began at the advent of the photographic medium itself with the earliest examples occurring around the 1860s. From post-mortem photographs of loved ones, carte-de-visites of soldiers who died in the American Civil War, to photographs of ectoplasm; spirit photography gave people tangible proof and a visual connection to the spiritual world. By using found images from the internet artist Meng-Yu Yan explores the world of orb photography. Regarded by many as simply a photographic error resulting from light reflecting off moisture or dust particles, Yan explores the Internet conspiracy theories that link these orbs to a spiritual dimension. The artist invites us to imagine how orbs can serve as a visual symbol or portal to our own moods, intuition, and alternate realities.

The artist embodies a trickster of sorts who enjoys playing “photographic games”with their audience. Their practice amalgamates various forms and materials - employing the use of mirrors and reflections, light, lenses, glass and water to distort our perspective of reality.
