Gorgeous Exploded Reflections by Photographer Ori Gersht

Gersht1

Tel-Aviv born and now London-based photographer Ori Gersht electrocutes mirrors, capturing them right at the moment the glass shatters. That the mirrors are reflecting flowers is an added bonus. Not only are the resulting images beautiful, they recall Gersht’s work from a few years ago. Although, in that case, it was the flowers themselves that were blown up. More images from Gersht’s latest project, as well as video from his previous, below!

Abandoned Detroit Duplex Filled with 36,000 Flowers

Waud11

Floral designer Lisa Waud bought an abandoned house in Detroit, Michigan for $250 and, with the help of 3 dozen fellow florists, replaced the garbage that once filled it with 36,000 flowers.

The project took a year to plan but was only on display for three days. Aside from the artistic appeal, the temporary installation was part of a broader desire to raise awareness around issues of sustainability and the repurposing of neglected properties in the area. See more images below!

It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 pictures to compile the following footage (the final video has around 5,000 images). He had to find flowers that would open fairly quickly; the interval between images was anywhere between 1 and 10 minutes.
