The fires of time burst forth from the beginning of all that is and all that ever has been, the very creation of our universe itself its hot destructive tendrils wrapping themselves around every mortal soul, no concession for rich or poor black or white, no confinement to our planet Times fire powers across the entirety of our universe …… The Fires of Time
This art work was created using a Pocket watch, oven tray (black) and a bottle of Metholated spirits.
The camera was set up on a tripod and the oven tray was placed on a non combustible object and both were placed on the floor away from any other combustible objects ie the house! I then practiced the idea trying different shutter speeds and apertures until the approximate level of correctness was reached so then I knew only small tweaks would be required during the actual shoot.
I then applied about an eggcup full of Metholated spirit on and around the pocket watch put my camera into remote mode and light the Metholated spirit with a long reach triggered oven lighter, at this point i hit the button on my remote to get the desired image seen here.
Please do not try to re create this unless you follow all safety procedures possible to maintain safety for yourself and others … Thank you.
