In her project phōtosgraphé, Lucea Spinelli creates long exposure photographs that afford us a view into the unknown. For the duration of the open shutter the lens becomes a canvas upon which Lucea paints with light. The illuminated forms she creates interact with spaces and objects in a way that evoke the unseen – such as spirit, dreams and metaphor – within the everyday. Often staying in the dark for long hours and relying on muscle memory alone, the process reflects ritual as a necessary part of interacting and evoking the unseen aspects of our reality. Thus by using a medium is commonly used to mimic reality, to suspend it, Lucea invites us to push beyond the bounds of visual perception to explore other ways of knowing. Finally, by stringing sequences of these long exposure photographs together into an animated .gif, the light forms are literally brought to life as they dance across the forever looping frame.
