Time Warp: Water

Q: I dig out a crater and form a coronet. What am I?
A: A droplet of water.

Time Warp is a Discovery Channel television series where “MIT scientist and teacher Jeff Lieberman — along with digital-imaging expert Matt Kearney — uses new technologies to bring truly never-before-seen wonders into a form that your body can actually process.” http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/time-warp/about/time-warp.html

In this episode, Martin Waugh demonstrates how he photographs water. You might think I’m a drip, but watching droplets of H2O fall into a pan full of water is amazing! And the photos? Absolutely beautiful! “By varying the size, speed and position of drops, as well as the color, viscosity, and surface tension, Martin creates a panorama of color, movement and intrigue.”  Waugh has a B.S. in physics, classifies himself as “father, engineer, artist” and blogs about his how he does what he does:  www.martin-waugh.com. Liquid Sculpture is another of his sites!

“Water is life’s mater and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.” ~Albert Szent-Gyorgyi.

Perhaps no beauty either. Liquid sculpture, indeed.
