The final set of bubbling biospheres and twinkling nebulas all created within the confines of a bell jar and a generous heap of household ingredients. These images look impressive in comparison to the grotty unglamorous nature of which they were produced, but curiosity and experimentation proved to be the winning ingredients. I shall be sharing … Continue reading Empyrean #8 →
Another batch of miniature colour infused concoctions, all photographed from the confines of a simple bell jar. Sometimes I would attempt to capture the reaction of ingredients as soon as it occurred, although it was fairly violent and fizzed furiously it was at times difficult for my camera to keep up, but sporadically the results … Continue reading Empyrean #7 →
A sixth offering of photographs from a method combining household fluids and powders in a jar and showcasing the results through the lens of my camera. It is hard to choose a favourite from these photos as I have a substantial amount that yet have to be shared and many more that didn’t make the … Continue reading Empyrean #6 →
Another set of miniature nebulas created with ingredients stashed away in my cupboards. This process of creating something out of nothing is what I felt special about the kick about – there is always something otherworldly to be found in the mundane.
A fourth collection of bubbles, froth, fizz and many colours for this weeks kick about prompt. What was so enjoyable about this process is no one image is the same and because of that I spent hours manefesting these miniature milkyways. Tilting a light, changing the lights colour, adding a splash of vinegar, or giving … Continue reading Empyrean #4 →
If you have Trypophobia look away now! I experimented with a different type of reaction with some of these outputs in particular the image above as at this point in the fun of this creative outpouring I started throwing in different elements at different times to see what transpires. Vinegar and baking soda made those … Continue reading Empyrean #3 →
A second cluster of images from this weeks Kick About inspired by textile artist – Louise Baldwin. These images were created in a very lofi method of simply mixing a plethora of ingredients including vegetable oil, water, food colouring and an alka seltzer tablet in a bell jar and capturing the mesmerising reaction as it … Continue reading Empyrean #2 →
This weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom is contemporary textile artist – Louise Baldwin. I felt a very instinct reaction to this weeks kick about and wanted to focus on two things – shapes and colour. I reconcile one of the most enjoyable kick about’s thus far being the prompt and singular word “Souvenir” … Continue reading Empyrean #1 →
A second offering for this weeks Kick About relating to the art of Ruth Asawa. This set of images and the occupying videos also inspired a different set of videos that didn’t make the cut – transpiring from a filmic method used for this slew of static images documenting the chemical reaction of household ingredients.
There was a few failed attempts at different iterations for this weeks Cephalopod kick about over on Red’s Kingdom, one of which was a lot less colourful and leaning towards the macabre. I decided to salvage one of the 3D models from that attempt and use the gooey textures from another previous kick about and … Continue reading Cephalopod #1 →
