Liquid Experiments Produce Hypnotizing Swirls of Color

New York-based artist Kim Keever experiments with colorful tinted paints and water to create these beautifully abstract, hypnotizing formations. As a former thermal engineer for NASA projects, Keever tends to veer his work towards the scientific and experimental.

To produce this particular style, the artist drops various amounts of color into water and documents the swirling liquids as they mix and mingle. He uses an enormous 200-gallon fish tank as the setting for much of his work, which offers plenty of space for the incredibly unpredictable reactions to emerge.

Staring at the mesmerizing photographs is a similar experience to pointing out shapes among the clouds. Within the blobs, swirls, and trickles of color, viewers might begin to imagine recognizable forms like fabric or faces, and some of the swirls appear almost solid enough to touch.
