Dark Adaptation extends the experiments with alternative optical systems the filmmaker began in Refraction Series (2008). Both films are rooted in the experiments and writings of Ibn Al-Haytham and Isaac Newton, pioneering investigators of the nature of sight and light. Gehman use fundamental phenomena such as refraction and thin-film interference to create images of pure prismatic colour in motion.
Chris Gehman is a Toronto-based filmmaker, programmer and writer. He was artistic director for the Images Festival of Independent Film and Video from 2001-2004 and recently completed a Master of Fine Arts in the Film & Video program at York University in Toronto.
