FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd – 7-9pm
42 Maple Contemporary Art Center is proud to present original artwork by Kristi Beisecker, a talented Massachusetts artist with a highly unique approach to photography. Her technique, known as electrography or Kirlian photography, fuses art and technology together to make a subtle radiation of energy appear within organic materials. Kristi’s artwork has been used in research studies, movies, books, and publications, and her process involves the exposure of organic matter to raw electricity using photosensitive paper and traditional darkroom techniques.
The discovery of energy output from organic materials is derived from a fascinating field of science known as Borderland Science. This field bridges science and spirituality together and reinvigorates spiritual phenomena so that it can be recognized and compatible with the scientific method.
Energy such as this can help us perceive and “investigate the existence of unexpected relationships between opposite aspects of everything around us,” which in turn can improve a greater understanding of each other. Kristi has defined and broken down this energy into light, sound,and form. Kristi’s photography will open your eyes to a biological phenomena not typically captured in a visual manner.
Albert Einstein once said, “All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.” This art exhibition embodies Einstein’s wise words.
