Moses Hacmon Photographs Water in Motion

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Israeli artist Moses Hacmon has found a way to capture water in motion through an analog photographic technique using a fluid film made out of nanoparticles that retains a liquid layer of iron. This registers the water's movement first and then allows it to be imprinted on any surface in any shape. The resulting photographic negative is then transformed into a positive image.

He creates a depth of field that goes beyond three-dimensional space; rather, his work captures a time-space dimension in a way that has few parallels in the history of art.
