Photographer Fabian Oefner Combines Science and Art

It’s no surprise that we enjoy the combination of science and art  and these images by Fabian Oefner are exactly that. Oefner comes from an art and design background but has always been interested in science. His images generally depict a scientific concept, however you don’t need to know the scientific background to see the beauty in his images.

As he explains in his TED talk the goal of his work is to speak to the viewer’s heart as well as their brain. For instance, the image above is created with ferrofluid which is a magnetic substance. After placing a magnet beneath the fluid and adding watercolor paint to the substance you can see the patterns and shapes begin to form. You don’t need to know that ferrofluid is hydrophobic (it won’t mix with water) to see that this image is stunning, but when you do know that the details in the image become much more evident.

Check out a few of his other images below to see the many ways science and art can collide.

Paint on a Speaker Makes 3D Pollock-Style Photos

It’s no surprise that we are fans of color. So when we saw these photographs by Martin Klimas we just had to share them!

These colorful creations were made by putting globs of paint onto a scrim which was placed over a speaker. Klimas then turned up the volume on a carefully selected track and captured the paint being tossed and thrown by the beat of the music.

It took him over 1000 shots to perfect his series, but we feel it was well worth it.

Photographs of Ice by Michael Wagner Create Amazing Textures and Colors

These are photographs of ice. You would never think that these stunning images are of such a simple substance, because photographer Michael Wagner has found a new and creative way of capturing it.

Using blocks of ice as his subject, Wagner created the beautiful colors and textures by placing LED holiday lights behind the transparent chunks. He then layered multiple exposures to portray the depth and detail that you see in the final images. See more on his Flickr page!
