Conduction is a series of photographs by Japanese artist Tomoya Matsuura which shows the science of conduction at work with the beauty of bubbles. In the series, numerous bubbles appear to be trapped and intertwined with thread as they are captured on camera, creating an incomprehensible and mesmerizing image.

Matsuura explains further on his website, ‘The work depicts the energy and mystery of conduction, which is present in everything. (Universe, Life, Nature, Particle, etc.) By conveying this idea through the medium of photography, it enables the viewer to perceive the work with a perspective that transcends the concept of scale- – microscopic or macroscopic’.
