Photographs from high voltages and household cleaning products

How amazing. Brooklyn-based artist Phillip Stearns, whose past work has used largely digital cameras and technology (the Glitch textiles for one), decided to create art with the help of old photographic methods.

After he studied the effect of high 15,000 voltages and household cleaning products (think vinegar, baking soda, salt, bleach and hydrogen peroxide) on instant color film to his heart’s content, what resulted next was the Retinal Pigment Epithelium and Other Vision Technologies, Real or Otherwise Imagined project. Very electrifying.
