Liquid Sculpture Defies Time And Space
Shinchi Maruyama's photographs catch the moment where water meets ink, reminders of the milliseconds where these fluid forms exist.
Japanese photographer, Shinchi Maruyama tosses handfuls of water into the air, melding high speed photography with sculpture and performance in the process. In the Water Sculpture series, liquid motion is presented as a perfect frozen moment in time. In an interview with the Morning News, Maruyama describes his attraction to working with liquid:
I think I am more aware of the moment recently after many years of experimenting with liquids. But no matter how many times I repeat the same process of throwing it in the air, I never achieve the same result. And I am so fascinated by this unexpected interaction of liquids colliding, which happens fairly infrequently, that I am overwhelmed by its beauty.
