Carson Lynn is Los Angeles based photographer and digital artist. He started creating digital art using computers from an early age, which has greatly influenced his photography. He graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California in 2015. His work will be exhibited this fall at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado and was featured in a group show recently at Studio Channel Islands' Blackboard Gallery in Camarillo, California.
Stemming from Lynn’s research into quantum mechanics, Tangled Fragments serves as a visualization of a photon of light. These infinitesimal particles make up everything we see, yet are impossible to perceive on such a small scale. I imagine the photons, before interacting with any objects, as containing all possible colors that light can become.
The purpose of my work is to visualize the unknowable and blur the line between reality and virtual reality. The abstract forms of my photography mirror the seemingly abstract concepts of physics and metaphysics. Whether the subjects I depict originate from physical or virtual-existential space, light is the most important element.
