Chemist and photographer Jon Smith fills light bulbs with unusual objects like like corn syrup, canola oil, water, maple syrup, bread flour, water, food coloring halk dust, candies, sprinkles, beer caps; or even painted in some instances; and then shoots the bulbs with a pellet gun, and captures the moment using high-speed photography.
“People see and use light bulbs every day. They’re something we don’t pay attention to. By shooting them, having them explode and filling them with different materials creates an interesting juxtaposition that I’m really drawn to.
