The photographs of funken (sparks) investigate the movement patterns of sparks. These appear like graphics showing traces of light. For better observatory purposes, the photographs of the sparks have been inverted to result in a highly graphical image in negative. The yellow of the sparks becomes blue, the black of the surrounding darkness turns pure white. The photographic inquiry focuses on random angles emerging according to how the sparks divide in the air forming tree-like structures that reveal their geometric properties. This work continues the analysis of mathematical patterns expressed in earlier works such as milch and snow noise.
