Water Drop Falling In Front Of MC Escher Print

August 2, 2011


These are actual photographs of water droplets falling in front of a print of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity'. There's a shot of the reddit photographer Smsilton's setup after the jump if you want to see how it was made, which, amazingly, didn't involve trapping a wizard in an hourglass and forcing him to freeze time. Or did it? I SAID SHOW ME THE HOURGLASS! Oh God Gandalf nooooooooooooooo!!

Hit the jump for the setup, which may or may yes have involved several stacks of CD's.

Thanks to Mary, who made a rainbow with a water hose and then took pictures of it. That's cheating!

    This was the idea behind the PS Vita LiveArea screen icons. The devs were playing around with drops and laughing their asses off going "WOO DUDES I BOUGHT A SWEET NEW DSLR LETS TAKE SOME COOL SHOTS" when one of them suggested they could use the droplet picture for that new interface.

    True story.
