Everywhere we look, we’re surrounded by color. The sea is blue, the grass is green and as evidenced by Nicki Minaj, hair can be any shade from crimson to copper. Fabian Oefner, a Swiss photographer, artist, and self-proclaimed investigator, likes to blur the lines between art and science using color.

From his series ‘Liquid Jewels’, a series of balloons covered in acrylics to whirling catherine wheels laden in colorful paint, Oefner gives himself a split second in which to take a photo as the color flies in different directions.

Exploring the intricacies of centripetal forces and natural phenomena like gravity, Fabian Oefner has created pieces of art that marvel in the magic of the natural world.
