A semiabstract photo-collage and a deep-blue C-print echoed the work's formal qualities of reflection and flatness, and monochromaticity. Like the cold, flat surfaces of iPads, the material quality of Winterling's works spoke to the technological ambiguity of Mooney's sculptures.
Based on stimulated emission, LD emits coherent light with a narrow bandwidth, which provides better monochromaticity [10].
