Thanks to Johnny Golding for suggesting
making contact with the researcher/artist
Maarten Vanvolsem regarding visualizing
electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Permission
has been given to temporarily show details
of images taken with a 'line' camera, which
explores time and speed in a single image.
These are part of an 'optical poetics' project
and are quite something to see. The first of
the two images below made me wonder if
a spectrometer was used. And the second
image helps one understand how the first
is made up of lines over a period of time. I
have never seen such a technique and it is
curious how an event with radiation or light
may be captured such as a sunset or even
an eclipse, night photography, fireworks, or
even underwater scenes. Attachments exist
for telescopes, yet it is wondered if spectro-
meters or other sensing devices could have
a recording function to interface with visually.
Thanks to Maarten for sharing these works...

(it is wondered what a UV filter on a line camera
would be like, or an infrared filter, seeing heat).
