Using fossil fuels and gunpowder, and aided by film industry special effects technicians, Geoffrey Short created and photographed explosions as a way of ‘exploring the relationship between terror and the sublime’. Shot in New Zealand, each explosion is created mid air to minimise the effects and damage to the environment.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
