Aether Field Portraits are initially photographed as portraits. After a photograph is taken on instant film, before processing the material is then subjected to a homemade Kirlian device – an invention said to make the human aura visible. The final image can then be read in a diagnostic manner, either as a fortuneteller would read tea leaves or a psychoanalyst a Rorschach test.
