Floto+Warner capture splashing colourful liquid at 1/3500th of a Second

Jul 19, 2014 | By Staff Writer

Cassandra Warner and Jeremy Floto recently captured this intriguing photography series titled Clourant that make splashing colourful liquid look like fluid sculptures hovering in midair. The pictures were shot at a speed of 1/3500th of a second, capturing the large splashes as well as the tiny droplets flying away from the chaos. Despite the duo not using photoshop, each picture appears digital in nature. Both artists, of the Floto+Warner Studio, skillfully disguise the origin of each burst to make the sculptures look like they developed organically.

The Artists explain on their website, “Colourant is a series of events that pass you by as an imperceptible flash. A fleeting moment, that blocks and obscures the landscape, a momentary graffiti of air and space. Creating shapes of nature not experienced by the human eye, these short-lived anomalies are frozen for us to view at 3500th of a second. Transforming the non-discernible and ephemeral to the eternal. The essence of photography—immortalize the transitory.”
