Making an omelet . . .

This morning, I found something interesting for you to look at and enjoy.

Thanks to The Presurfer, I saw some interesting photographs made by German artist Martin Klimas.

Klimas drops ceramic figurines and takes photographs at the moment of impact. His pictures are taken using a strobe-light type camera that clicks the shutter when it hears the sound of shattering.

You can read more about his technique, and see some of his photographs via this link.

Though I am surely influenced by the Asian style of these particular figurines, I think Klimas' pictures have a sort of "Matrix" stop-motion feeling to them.
