Art We Love – Jon Smith’s High-Speed Rainbow Explosions

As creative creatures, we can find inspiration around every corner. Sometimes, our muse is words (the New Yorker’s Shouts & Murmurs is always a good start). Other times, it’s film or TV (Arrested Development, anyone?). And this Monday morning, it’s a collection of eye-catching photos from artist Jon Smith.

The photographer starts by filling incandescent light bulbs with objects like sand, sprinkles or pom-poms. Then comes the fun part: making the bulbs explode, and capturing the image with his camera. The result is a set of dynamic, vibrant, high-speed photos that convey the movement of the explosion almost as well as film would.
