“In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a universe.”
The words of Nikola Tesla were immensely interesting. Just as one form of energy is transferred to another, so is thought and imagination to pen and paper. We then recollected that as children we loved scribbling out elaborate stories all over the potentially infinite canvas of walls in the house.
The Light Painter, therefore used light, instead of pigment, as a medium of transference of energy and thought. Light energy, broken into its constituent colours formed an almost infinite palette, which could then be transferred onto the wall by converting it to electrical signals and back to light again.
