Starn Brothers: Absorption of Light, presented by 516 ARTS, is a series of large elemental photographs from the series Absorption of Light by twin brothers Doug and Mike Starn, who for more than 20 years have been known for working conceptually with photography, and are concerned largely with chaos, interconnection and interdependence. The ill-fated moths of the Attracted to Light series are caught moments before self-immolation, drawn to the light that kills them, their images pinned, momentarily, on photographic paper. Their subjects are both emblems of and witnesses to the dualistic character of light, with its power to give life and to destroy it, to illuminate and to blind. Organized by Teresa Buscemi.
