Project2010: 069 of 375 (February 28th)



Last piece for Feburary, and another unearthing of forgotten archival material; this time it's from am October 2007 session with food colouring in empty fish tanks.

The title comes from the Oceansize album of the same name, and is relevant due to the (unintentional) similarities between its cover art and this image. There are several images to come that follow the same unconscious symbiontic pattern with other releases.

Nice contrasts of colors & textures ! a nice mix between Water & Fire. Like "Vitriol" (Sulfuric acid in English).

It's fascinating to me that this was achieved with water, and all I can see when I look at it is fire.
