As of 1992 Thomas Emde began using a self-developed manufacturing process that enables the creation of an image from pure material color and, in turn, the renunciation of any need for a traditional image carrier such as canvas: gossamer-thin layers of material color are stratified dot-by-dot onto a color ground, resulting on a three-dimensional grid structure of tiny color stalagmites. The stalagmites are stratified layer by layer with different colors, the end result being a work that changes its colors depending on the visual axis of the viewer. These works display hints of the dynamic interaction of color that has since come to play a larger role in Emde’s light art.
