Liquid Sculpture

Liquid Sculpture is the process of creating shapes by dropping and splashing water, or other liquids. These sculptures are then photographed, since they last only a few thousandths of a second. Creating and capturing these engaging forms requires careful manipulation of the materials and precise control of the lighting and timing. I mostly use plain, clear water, sometimes with a little soap in it (gallery). I have experimented with food coloring, as well (gallery), and glycerin to increase the viscosity (gallery). Milk is a classic material and still enjoyable (gallery), and oil is very tempting (gallery).
