Long Exposures of Melting Ice Cream Pops Become Striking Abstract Art

Melting ice cream pops are the subject of a fun exhibit of photographs by Michael Massaia, now on view at Gallery 270 in New Jersey. The project titled "Transmogrify", entails placing ice cream pops on a black background, allowing them to melt in their own time and documenting the striking results. Via the press release, "Photographed as unaltered long exposures of naturally melting ice cream pops shot with available light, they are at once whimsical and cosmic. Encompassing the widest range of interpretation as imagery from deep space photography down to the photo microscopic, they become colorful, graphically striking contemporary Rorschachs!"
