"This installation, named “Liquid Sculpture”, uses bubbles in the liquid to draw three-dimensional graphical patterns..."

Re: Liquid

Thanks. Interesting use of new technologies to create liquid kinetic art.

Also relating to liquid sculptures, I just notice this news article from the BBC about sculptures made from oil.

The message of using oil to create art

Russian artist Andrei Molodkin has explained how his latest exhibition uses crude oil to raise questions about cultural dominance and global communication.
Molodkin's latest exhibition, entitled Sweet Crude Eternity, is currently on display at the Kashya Hildebrand gallery in New York.

Many of the exhibits are created using plastic to create hollow moulds which are then filled with crude oil. They include sculptures of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, internal human organs, and words such as "Democracy" all containing oil

The full article with a sculpture photo can be found here.

Re: Liquid

The oil sculptures are very nice.

I suppose the artist first makes a wax model and invests that in the clear plastic. Finishing by melting out the wax.... Or I suppose a water-soluble clay or wax would be more likely. Heat might wreck the clear plastic finish.
