Watch a clip from "Machi" by Morgan Fisher from the 2010 DVD compilation "The Light Painter." For the last twenty years, alongside his more publicized work in the field of music, Morgan Fisher has been developing and refining a technique he calls "Light Painting." While many have used this term, in Morgan's case this consists principally of abstract or absolute photography created by moving the camera during extended exposures in front of various types of light sources.
