What does it look like when something as delicate as a flower explodes into a million pieces? Photographer Martin Klimas is behind this fascinating series called Rapid Bloom where he drops flowers into liquid nitrogen and then shoots them with an air gun from behind. Klimas wanted to show the flower, in its entirety, in one single shot, a flower in full bloom turned into a fascinating piece of abstract art.
You may remember the name Martin Klimas. He’s also the one behind the fun series What Does Music Look Like? that showed colorful paint jumping and dancing to the sound of music.
"At first glance, Iwasaki’s created world Out of Disorder looks a bit odd and doesn’t really make much sense. It seems to be erected out of nowhere: microscopic sculptures are randomly placed amongst the most banal everyday objects such as rolls of tape, a messy towel, or a bunch of sprawled tooth brushes. The tiny detailed miniatures look like real life shrunken objects such as wonder wheels, electricity pylons, etc. The artist even carves topographical maps on thick grey or blue electric tape.
But if you take a closer look, you’ll see that the intricate and almost impossibly small symbols of modern civilization, combined with random everyday objects, create unexpected urban landscapes. Out of Disorder represents our world and how civilization simply occurs surrounded by chaos.”
