Daniel Lergon experiments with light effects and chemical reactions, exploring optics and perception. In his early work, such as Cold Fire (2008), he applied clear varnish to high-tech fabrics, exploring optics and perception, and in Lapetus (2010), he used reflective materials to emphasize contrast. In recent work, he has combined elemental metals such as powdered copper, zinc, and oxidized iron with water to form abstract patterns.
