James Welling used filters when he took his photographs of Glass House. On the concept of filters, Welling states:
“I’ve been using the word filter as a noun, but it’s also a verb. A filter lets some wavelengths of light through and certain kinds of information to seep in.” Artforum. 2010. “500 Words: James Welling.” Accessed 10/10/2010. http://artforum.com/words/id=24743
