Black Hole: Paint in Motion Photographed by Fabian Oefner
Fabian Oefner's "Black Hole" is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by centripetal force. Fabian created these amazing photos by pouring various shades of acrylic paint onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures. Fabian explains, "The motion of the paint happens in a blink of an eye, the images you see are taken only millisecond after the drill was turned on. To capture the moment, where the paint forms that distinctive shape, I connected a sensor to the drill, which sends an impulse to the flashes. These specialized units are capable of creating flashes as short as a 1/40000 of a second, freezing the motion of the paint."
