The ‘A Single Continuous Line of Light‘ project documents some of the most influential figures in the development of Fibre Optics, using their discovery – of a way to transmit light from one place to another – as a tool to record their own images. The technique could perhaps be termed ‘Fibre Optic Photocopying’ and uses reflected light to slowly build up the image line by line.

The final image of the slideshow is of Dr Narinder Kapany and was produced for Mike Crawford’s Obsolete and Discontinued Project, using out-of-date Kodak Bromide G2 paper and processed in Moersch SE5 Lith developer for approximately 16 minutes. Due to the reduced sensitivity of the paper, the image was built up from approximately 4000 individual ‘passes’.

More information coming soon.
