Musings on art and life.
Aside from the obvious safety issues, (a result of living in the Health and Safety crazy capital of the world?) I would LOVE to do this. Jon Smith’s photographs are wicked cool. They depict the shattering of light bulbs, filled with various objects and substances such as; glitter, paint (wet and dry) marbles, googley eyes and bottle caps, just to name a few examples. Jon sets up the scene with a sound activated flash trigger, high speed camera and a pellet gun. The result is these fantastic images of colour and movement. You can check out more of his photography on his Flickr photostream, WideEyedIlluminations and on recent features on the new-look Colossal.com and Designtaxi.com.
I would have liked very much to link directly to Jon’s website, but he’s a smart man, and has his Flickr photo stream protected. So these images link directly back to Colossal.com and designtaxi.com and I take absolutely zero credit for them.
