"The artist’s fascination for the magic of magnesium flashlight obtains a double connotation in Shot (2014), a series focusing on both the creative and destructive capacities of the chemical element. When Somers bombarded pictures of minerals – from which Mg is extracted in nature – with ignited flash powder, burning holes in the paper carrier mutilated the images. In a self-reflexive act the magnesium light attacks its own origin, devouring itself in a sense."
