My name is Austine Wood Comarow, I create Polarized Light Art, which I call Polage® art, a term I coined from polarized light collage. All my work starts as a drawing. Then I follow the drawing, cutting various thicknesses of clear colorless cellulose in the form of cellophane into hundreds of tiny pieces at different angles, laminating each piece between polarizing filters.

Interactive Polage Art in Action

Polage® art may be interactive, kinetic, or passively viewed like stained glass. Austine prefers to work in all three modes because each image is conceived to convey a particular idea or feeling. This video demonstrates several types of viewers that can be used to participate in interactive Polage® artwork.  We have also incorporated viewers into windows, glass partitions, hanging sculptures and motorized kiosks.
