“Light Break presents an investigation into the symbolic meaning and healing effect of light. This body of work takes as its focus the late-19th-century revolutionary research into light therapy undertaken by doctor and Nobel laureate Niels Finsen.
Finsen deduced that certain wavelengths of light could have beneficial medical effects for a number of otherwise incurable conditions. Through collaboration with the Medical Museion in Copenhagen, Howalt was able to access the vast archive relating to Finsen’s research, unseen in storage for almost a hundred years.
Light Break combines photo-documentation of crucial aspects of Finsen’s archive with an endeavor to capture, through the medium of photography, the color and expression of ultraviolet light, invisible to the human eye. The seemingly abstract images result from two distinct but related processes: The larger series are photographs taken directly of the sun, appropriated from the NASA website.”
