The liquid space project / by scotland symons

Experimenting with making a series on images of liquids painted on glass to simulate interstellar nebulas and gas clouds. Each one is made up of varying liquids (alcohol, water, milk, hair dye, dish soap, peroxide, glycerin), particles (glitter, salt, ash, sand), and then lit with different lights (led, florescent, candle). Using all of those items I compose and paint a scene that I capture with one long exposure shot.

The process starts out with a piece of plexiglass suspended in mid air. Once there I start applying the liquid and glitter and whatever to paint a nebula.

Then turn the lights off and add a little ambient lighting.

Now start messing with all of the variables and see what happens.

Then clean it up and start again :D
