Global warming is real , whatever the cause may actually be there is no denying that our glaciers are melting at an ever alarming rate.
My image shows our glaciers melting away at such a rate there is only little bits left with the time we have left metaphorically burning away all that is left, spiralling the human race into its own destruction……….. Times up!
Art created using a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro
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 appertures untill 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 the pocket watch and added water to the baking tray, I then added barbecue fuel to the water which created the bits around the watch and heated it up which made a reaction with the water.
I 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 proceedures possible to maintain safety for yourself and others … Thank you.
