Happy Valentine’s Day!

Paint flung from a spinning drill forms a heart shape surrounded by filaments

To make this heart, photographer Helene Caillaud flung paint off a tool attached to a drill bit, much like Fabian Oefner did in his “Black Hole” series. Caillaud, however, tweaked the set-up to create distinctive shapes at the center of her images, with centrifugal force creating the beautiful filaments spiraling outward. It’s a neat effect and a fitting way to celebrate Valentine’s Day here on FYFD! (Image credit: H. Caillaud)
