Picasso: Drawing With Light [art]

Picasso is an insanely visionary artist as it is, yet  to draw on the void of air in a blink of an eye using nothing but the glory of light is revolutionary.

“Picasso” LIFE magazine reported at the time, “gave Mili 15 minutes to try one experiment. He was so fascinated by the result that he posed for five sessions, projecting 30 drawings of centaurs, bulls, Greek profiles and his signature. Mili took his photographs in a darkened room, using two cameras, one for side view, another for front view. By leaving the shutters open, he caught the light streaks swirling through space.” – TIME

“By setting off a 1/10,000-second strobe light, [Mili] caught Picasso’s intense, agile figure as it flailed away at the drawings,” LIFE reported.
