After a successful Kickstarter campaign from earlier this year, Robert Shults is happily taking his new book, Superlative Light, on tour before its official release this fall. The book is sure to be a hit for any fan of photography, science and science fiction.
“In a cavernous complex buried three stories beneath the University of Texas, there resides an almost inconveivable piece of technology which inolves some of the most extreme conditions ever encountered by mankind.
It is called the Texas Petawatt and, at the time of these photos, it produced the most powerful laser pulse anywhere is the world.
At its peak output, this massive device releases an unparalleld luminous force which constitutes the brightest light known to exist in the entire universe.
With this ambitious work of of science at its foundation, The Superlative Light follows an original work of science fiction written by mathematician and author Rudy Rucker. The combination of words and photography has been rounded into what is indelibly an auspicious work of art.
For those interested in taking a peek at The Superlative Light before its publication, Shults will be stopping in at least four different locations for events: on August 30 and 31st, Atlanta, for the Decatur Book Festival; September 20th, New York City for Photoville; September 25th, Chicago, for Filter Photo Festival. Capping the tour will be the book release party on October 31st in Hillsborough, NC, at the Daylight Community Arts Center.
