CAMERA OBSCURA BY ABELARDO MORELL
Photographer Abelardo Morell - “I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film. In the beginning, exposures took from five to ten hours”. [see more]
…so I ended up getting just super lazy/messy with it. and it came out bleh, lol.

What happens to liquids, specially colored liquids, when stressed by Music?In this photographic experiment, a loudspeaker has been covered with a balloon to create a surface into with then some liquid paint has been poured. The loudspeaker is connected to an iPhone, and when the music hits the speaker, the liquid starts to dance to the music. Then, a kind of magic the human eye can’t see starts.
