    Electricity and Film- now this is awesome

    The artist Hiroshi Sugimoto is applying 400,000 volts of electricity to film.

    The results are very interesting.

    If you like that then search for what high voltage does to titanium.

    ^^^ I'm looking but so far I've only located commercial sites... nothing instructional.

    EDIT: Here are a couple of sites showing rainbow anodization. all I can find are commercially available products... sorry. The thing I saw years ago involved high voltage electrodes dragged across the surface of titanium sheet metal resulting in some pretty wild colorful shapes with lightening-like spark patterns. But I can't find anything on that process now.

    And in a similar vein, Energie!. Big epilepsy warning on that one though.

    So, this guy had a dry lab and got a lot of static electricity, right?

    Wow, a hero.

    It is common for static discharge to reach 500,000 - 1,000,000 V with low amperage and the results enlarged will look like what you see. I hate to inject a note of reality here, but there is nothing new. You can generate these easily in your dry darkroom.
