Cassandra Warner and Jeremy Floto ofÂ Floto+Warner StudioÂ recently produced this beautiful series of photos titledÂ ClourantÂ that seemingly turns large splashes of colorful liquid into glistening sculptures that hover in midair. The photos were shot at a speed of 1/3,500th of a second, taking special care to disguise the origin of each burst making images appear almost digital in nature (the duo assures no Photoshop was used).Â
In 2011, Dublin-based physics student David Whyte began a Tumblr calledÂ Bees & BombsÂ where he posted humorous images and quirky GIFs of his own creation, borrowing heavily from videos and pop culture icons. One day he decided to start playing withÂ Processing, a popular open source programming language designed to help create images, animation, and various computer interactions.Â
Over the last three months photographer Thomas Herbrich snapped some 100,000 individual photographs of smoke, looking for unexpected anamalies and fortuitous coincidences where familiar shapes emerged. Itâ€™s fascinating to see how the brain tries to create order out of chaos, just like looking up at the clouds, suddenly familiar patterns seem to stand out: faces, hands, or scrolls of paper. After carefully sifting through each image Herbrich selected 20 final shots for this series, aptly titled, Smoke.
