Things I Like — Sonja Thomsen

After success with free concerts, and my eternal love of free museums (fueled by my need to put pretty things in my eyeballs daily), I popped into DePaul University’s Art Museum.

The semi-truck turned giant-pinhole-camera photographs were neat. But Sonja Thomsen‘s arresting explorations of light, prisms and rays stole the show.

There was a large scale photo: the center seam of an open book, a rainbow gently falling across its surface. The light was beautiful and soft; the print folded precisely along the book’s spine to give it a three-dimensional quality somehow even more ephemeral than the image. Bliss.
