Stay Calm - Light Painting a Buddha Bust

This Buddha bust is solely made of metal screw nuts.

Even if rage is burning you from the inside. Try to find your inner balance. Well, here I am super excited about my Light Painting subject. Cant hide it.

Enter the Cristalica Art Collection for a few more shots.

Just a month over ago I got the chance to Light Paint the sculptures collected by the Cristalica Glasshouse in Döbern. It was interesting to see that the shop sells glassware and in the back, you have these sculptures. Loved it!


This buddha sculpture was set aside on a table held by an alien. Super cool. If you have a closer look at the second image you can see it better. I was super excited that we were allowed to use fire inside the factory at all. That's not a given.

We got to light paint about amazing 20 metal sculptures as you can see. We got to face the most popular sci-fi alien stars all onboard holding still for some portraits. Ooh yes
See my last few posts.

This time you find some selected images that show a few Light Paintings of the bust. I tried to make then all a little bit different. It is always a matter of taste. Let me know which one you like the most.


For both images, I used the standard scanner device that I always use and orange-colored flashlights to add some orange and red. The main Image also has features set with the black fiber optic brush that I love so much.

It's always tricky to photograph someone else's art. Here I am super happy that we were allowed all the freedom of our interpretation with light. At first, I was not sure about this but it turned out to become so much fun. The night went so fast - I could have stayed at least 2 more hours.

The Cristalica Glasshouse in Döbern. is about 1.5h south of Berlin and is very visible from the street. It's a huge glass pyramid not to miss.


Thank you so much for your attention.
