Fluid Photography: Foam, Ice, Air, Flood

  • From Russia with Foam: John Peterson passed along this gallery showing the hiterto unknown art of drawing on top of coffee. (I think Jerry Uelsmann might dig this one. ;-)) And later I found a video of the techniques in action.
  • Only slightly more permanent, the sparkling sculptures in the Harbin international ice and snow festival are built to chill. [Via] China Daily features photos from the opening ceremonies.
  • Elsewhere in cold China, check out this frozen waterfall. [Via]
  • The Musée d’Orsay features the work of Etienne-Jules Marey, who did pioneering work photographing air at the start of the 20th century, using imaging plus one of the first wind tunnels to reveal previously unseen details of air’s fluid dynamics. [Via]
  • Whereas those vintage photos are presented in frustatingly small form, the Paris School of Mines features large images of the city during the 1910 flood [Via]

[For more snowy goodness, see previous.]
