About This Project

What does a liquid look like when it’s shooting out of a container? Various liquid materials found in everyday life have been recorded with macro images. In particular, to capture the moment of the exit at the perfect time was crucial to us. Since this moment is not visible to the naked eye, it is the centerpiece of our work. It was difficult to imagine how the light would work in this situation and how to adjust it, because the material is hard to grasp. Once we had found the right settings, it was a game between the time of spraying and pulling the trigger. In terms of timing, precision was key. However, the surprise effect was astonishing und exciting. Although the procedures were always identical, the results would change with every try, even when using the same materials. The materials that worked best were ketchup, shaving gel, whipped cream and water.
