High Voltage: Electrified Photographs

Househappy —  April 8, 2014 — 1 Comment

What happens when you zap a Polaroid with 15,000 volts of electricity? Probably not a question any of us have asked ourselves recently, but artist Phillip Stearns decided to find out.

After the Brooklyn-based artist discovered a bunch of instant color films in a dumpster, he began pouring liquids like bleach, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and rubbing alcohol onto them and applying high voltage. Each liquid delivered blooms of color to the film.

In his approach, Phillip took cues from Hiroshi Sugimoto‘s static discharges on photo paper, as well as avant garde photographers like Man Ray, but his results are wholly original.
