working in his garage with a homebuilt air-gap flash rather than any special camera, american artist alan sailer captures the explosion of foods and other objects when impacted at high speeds. to take his photographers, sailer uses a micro-second guided spark flash, which he built himself based on an article from a 1974 volume of scientific american and information found online. to create the explosions, he uses a PVC or copper cannon to launch pellets and marbles at his subjects.

  • Hello there! I know this really is kinda off subject but I used to be questioning which blog site platform will you be working with for this site? I’m acquiring fed up of WordPress simply because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m investigating alternatives for a different platform. I might be fantastic when you could stage me in the route of a superior platform.
