Simply put, black holes suck. Thankfully, Fabian Oefner’s Black Hole project is attractive and far from sucky.
Inspired by the drippy paint style of Jackson Pollock, the Swiss photographer and artist decided to investigate the effect of centrifugal force on paint. He dripped coloured shades of acrylic paint onto a metal rod that was connected to a drill. When the drill was switched on, the paint whirled away from the rod, and Oefner’s camera flashed at 1/40000 of a second, capturing the images of the paint in motion. Have a look at some of his rather colour Black Hole images after the jump.
