Thankfully, oil and ink don’t mix–which makes these dazzling photographs by Alberto Seveso possible. In his “Dropping” series, the Italian artist drips colored inks into oil, photographs the splash, then flips the resulting image upside down. The collision of oil and ink results in an exuberant dance of suspended droplets, which Seveso documents as saturated molten sculptures. [Read more...]

Snowflakes have been something we’ve marveled at for centuries. The idea that no two are exactly alike, the way that some are good for snowballs and others are not, and the way that they are formed have always been topics of interest. Now a team at University of Utah, lead by atmospheric scientist Tim Garret, have created a super high speed camera set that can take 3D images of snowflakes in mid-air. The Multi-Angle Snowflake Camera (MASC) is triggered by infrared sensors to capture snowflakes as they fall from the sky and can capture thousands of images each night. [Read more...]
