Liquid Universe - What no eye has ever seen

Thanh-Khoa Tran is in pursuit of a modern chimera. He is looking for the beauty of ephemeral shapes, captured in photographs. It is the permanent change of complex forms, too fast for the human eye to really be perceived, that challenge him in the field of ultra-short wave photography. The aesthetic patterns and figures evolve from the current and creative mixture of liquids like ink, oil, soap and water, and we combine these patterns with similar structures of different origins. What we see are botanical, animal and technical constructions. Tran’s images are an invitation to a journey into the ream of bionics. Tran describes the process of creating his images in the words of a researcher: “Before the production process of a photographical experiment starts there is always an idea, an image that already exists in my imagination. For this precise imagination of a concrete image, I then try to find a photo technical procedure. The work on the way to visualizing the image creates results that offer further possibilities of creating new images. At the end of all this, I often choose an image that came up during the experiment as a so-called by-product.”
