“Luminant Point Arrays” is a series of photos by Stephan Tillmans, capturing tube televisions the moment they are shut off.
Wow! These are so strangely beautiful.
The best ideas are the ones so simple they make you ache with how you didn’t think of it. All those times I’ve turned off my crappy tv…
wow, this is awesome!
The TV as subject matter is really interesting. To me, turning off the TV represents the face of reality. Catch my drift?
Awesome concept and awesome execution!
These are lovely, I really like how abstract they look… would never have guessed they were televisions!
New interpretation of Dan Flavin. Like it.
wow…i remember sitting and turning the TV off over and over again as a small child trying to get a better look at that moment exactly. Not only does tha make these really satisfying, but they are also beautiful.
very nice concept =)
kind of reminds me of this music video made by Tom Jenkinson AKA Squarepusher: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isb7MztEbB8

Very similar to the 2005 photographic work by the Australian artist Kenzee Patterson where he captures the turning off of the televisions. http://www.kenzeepatterson.com/index.php?row=101&field=09_Photos_image
