A large wood moth made temporary shelter in our studio the week we were studying Abbott’s interference work.
To explain wave phenomenon, Abbott adapted photogram techniques she had learned as Man Ray’s assistant in the 1920s. Combining a glass-bottomed ripple tank with an overhead flash, she projected shadows of oscillating waves onto unexposed photographic paper. The strong graphic black-and-white lines in Wave Pattern with Glass Plate lucidly reveal how energy pulses through water.
