Incipit

I’m currently collecting a new set of images based on new configurations in chemistry and optics. The parameters of these configurations operate on a much smaller scale, and therefore require a different technique for recording and printing. The works I publish on this page are the first (digital) results coming out of this new configuration.  





From Wikipedia; The incipit (/ˈɪnsɪpɪt/)[1] of a text is the first few words of the text, employed as an identifying label. In a musical composition, an incipit is an initial sequence of notes, having the same purpose.
Before the development of titles, texts were often referred to by their incipits. During the medieval period in Europe, incipits were often written in a different script or colour from the rest of the work of which they were a part, and "incipit pages" might be heavily decorated with illumination. Though the word incipit is Latin, the practice of the incipit predates classical antiquity by several millennia and can be found in various parts of the world. Although not always called by the name of incipit today, the practice of referring to texts by their initial words remains commonplace.
