Artist's Description

Inspired by a few entries in the CD/Water droplet challenge and particularly my dear friend Donell, who told me to fry a CD… never done that before so I was curious to see how it would go…

Fantastic – literally hours of fun with the patterns, cracks, colours and processing :o)

Sony a350 w/ Sigma 70mm Macro lens – 1/320 sec at f/3.5, ISO 800.

Shelly asked me to describe how this is done – it’s really quite easy. Take an old CD, this was an old CDR with the dark blue surface, drop it in the microwave label side down (along with a cup of water just by the side so you don’t screw your microwave) and give it about 3/4 seconds. Watch the sparks fly and the surface crackle :o)

get the water dropper, a decent light source (window) and a tripod and away you go… literally hours of fun finding cool patterns and trying to get your droplets just right :)
