Making a splash: Photos capture colorful liquids frozen in time

Where did the idea for the series come from?

This work grew out of our 2009 smoke bomb series. We also have a long-held fascination with the expansive landscapes found out west. Most of our personal photographic work is centered on an investigation of the landscape. We see these as aberrations in space and time, an exploration of the relationship between subject and background. Part performance art, part sculpture - captured by the medium of photography.  

We call them floating sculptural events. They pass you by at 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 3200th of a second. The non-discernible and ephemeral is transformed to the eternal.
