Prisms on Fabric

This time I wanted to experiment with the scarves some more, I found out if you put the crystal right next to the scarf you get beautiful results, rather then holding the crystal far away like I was doing previously.

Here is a video I made that shows you how turning the crystal alters the light dispersion…

The Video

(this video refers to the last process, scroll down to see how I came to this)

The Images

I started out by putting the crystal about 2 cm away from the projector light, then projecting the light behind the crystal, and taking images this didn’t work too well, the like dispersions were taken over by the direct light of the projector, it is also hard to decipher the difference between whats a pattern on the scarf and whats light, maybe this technique would work well on a white scarf…

I then decided to include the diamond in the image, again this just distracted from the scarf itself…

I noticed pretty patterns the crystal created when I was holding it in my hand close the wall and far away from the light, i started taking pictures without the fabric so I could compare the difference after…

These last ones are definitely the best images, and the process i will develop further tomorrow.
