Light Years

Direction and production of an 8-minute film to accompany the launch of Light Years, a generative art collection by Dmitri Cherniak made in collaboration with the Estate of László Moholy-Nagy.

Light Years consists of 100 unique digital and physical silver gelatin prints. The artworks were developed iteratively as the artist Dmitri Cherniak traveled to Ann Arbor and Zürich researching Moholy-Nagy. Each edition was created by a code-based generative system, then hand-prepared and printed to a film negative that was used to develop the image as a silver gelatin print.
