TEDx: Photographer Fabian Oefner Talks About Combining Art and Science

Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner recently gave this short 10-minute talk at TEDx Warwick 2013 in which he shares about how he tries to use photography to explore the two worlds of visual art and scientific principles. Many of his personal projects revolve around making natural phenomena visible, showing them in “previously unseen and poetic ways,” and “encouraging viewers to pause for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.”

We’ve featured his work a handful of times before — projects that involve using fiber glass lamps to create the appearance of space nebulae, using a drill to photograph paint being flung outward, capturing soap bubbles as they pop, and shooting high-speed photos of paint-covered balloons popping.
