Mind-Bending Light-Benders

Contrary to our first guess, slitscan photography is not a euphemism for office-created porn made by hiking up one's skirt and sitting on a scanner. (Copiers are sturdier anyway, so stick to the Xerox machine.) It's actually a photographic technique that captures motion, stretching its subject to impossible lengths, and is intriguingly employed by Ansen Seale on a specially designed camera to capture expansive wall-length pictures of water. His works, titled Luminous Flux, along with drawings by Frank X. Tolbert 2, are on display through January 18 at HCG Gallery, 1130 Dragon St., Suite 190. Call 214-760-9230 or visit hcggallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 11. Continues through Jan. 18, 2010
