a beautiful moment in time

From Colossal:It never ceases to amaze me: just when I think I’ve seen every possible permutation of an artform or technique—be it figurative sculpture, stop motion animation, or in this case, high speed photography—somebody comes along and manages to do something radically different. His photostream. His set up. (flickr)

I'm usually bored to death by those waterdrop photos, but these are different and actually interesting. Kinda jellyfish meets mushroom looking.

Wasn't this posted a few days ago?

See also Martin Waugh, Vladimir Nefedov, François Dorothé, Markus Reugels. I like Maier's best, though.

That's a great website you have there, joinks - bookmarked!

Seconded, you've featured some really great artists that I haven't heard of.

The earlier post was about Markus Reugels, who Specklet linked above. I think we can live with two beautiful water photography posts in a month... especially since this one also has a quote by joinks. :)

I just wanted to chime in and say that Colossal is a great art blog and I catch up on it semi-regularly. (That's not faint praise, it's the sign of a healthy relationship with a website!) For those who haven't seen it, it ranges from vaguely Boingboingy design pieces all the way to traditional fine art, but generally more thoughtful than gimmicky. Thanks!

Thanks all for the kind words. So glad you're enjoying Colossal. Stay tuned for a number of pretty awesome developments over the next several weeks.
