An experimental project challenging the boundaries of water and its possibilities.
'Craft' is now defined in a much broader term which includes traditional & contemporary craft but also in digital making / film as well as concept, copywriting and creative direction. This is a brief about making and crafting a personal approach to create an outcome that communicates the theme ‘Balance’.
During a photographic workshop, I created this image by placing the pinhole camera on the floor against the florescent lights and I started to experiment by slowing rotating the camera to achieve this multi-exposure effect.
Developing an idea
What I like about the image above is the abstract shapes and the movements being captured. And those are the elements I wish to take further into this project. Yet instead of experimenting with lights, I want to experiment with water and its possibilities.
I looked into objects like glass tube, acetate sheets, straws and dropper etc to support the liquid to form into different shapes.
A Personal Approach
This project aims to capture the beauty of water as it is impermanent and incomplete through still life photography - visualising the interactions between different water forms colliding in mid-air. As well as to challenge the boundaries of water and create a sense of motion to portray the theme 'Balance'.
A quick experiment to visualise the concept as well as testing with lightings and photo shoot set up.
Three sets of photo shoot with different techniques to create different water forms.
