Ink and oil aren’t really the best buddies. Those dudes plain refuse to mix. If you’ve got the skill of Alberto Seveso, that is a very good thing leading straight to the door of beautiful patterns and photographs. For the photographs, ink was dropped in oil, and photographed using a high speed camera before the two could separate.
The result is ink droplets looking like they’re suspended in the middle of nowhere, and perhaps crafted to look the way they do. It’s serendipity and skill, the two things that are an absolute b*tch to combine.
