Researching more about bizarre magic for an article I’m writing about my Houdini collaborator Ryan Majestic, I got to thinking about spiritualist photography, again, and about how analog abstraction in photography is in vogue right now as well as how on some level the techniques used to create what was seen in spiritualist photographs are an analog for digital modeling techniques meant to show us the scientific yet invisible as well as how night vision’s green haze has altered how and what we see when we can’t see.  Also I watched a preview for Tron.

So I whipped these up with some very rudimentary photoshop techniques as some kind of triangulation between spiritualism, science modeling, and “art” abstraction as well as a continuation of my ongoing fascination with tacky, cheeseball images.  Enjoy:
