These four films show the evolution in Rekveld's focus on light, and deal in very different ways with the interaction between light and matter. Whereas #23.2, Book of Mirror arose from an attempt to show the materiality of light as it diffracts, #37 found its inspiration in how such techniques are used in crystallography. The last two films in the programme are based on Rekveld's interest in the fine structure of matter and its patterns and processes, which can be revealed by electromagnetic radiation.
