After Light
Nancy Campbell/Paula Naughton
Einstein believed that equations waited to appear to the right scientist, like finger-writing on a mirror,
revealed when steam hits the surface. After Light captures this split-second of discovery.

Photographs of a derelict house in Ireland evoke texts investigating the different qualities of light:
irradiance, absorption, diffraction, reflection and refraction.

Light intrudes on the abandoned building, the only measure of time passing. Five poems
consider the domestic interiors from the viewpoint of rays of light as they are acted on by
material forces. Altered equations posit emotional equivalents to scientific ideas.

Archival storage box, slides, slide viewers, bias binding.
Text inkjet-printed in Perpetua on a scroll of Somerset Satin using archival inks. 2009
