Vacuum cleaners like the Dyson have
plastic reservoirs filled with a rapidly
rotating vortex of the domestic dust and
other detritus they take in.
The Stillness of Dust is a photo series
that results from using the latest cyclone
cleaner strobe/camera attachment extra.
it's switched on, you can choose to
observe your dust at close quarters, as
strobe freezes its motion and a powerful
magnifying glass reveals its detail.
Alternatively you can take random
photographs in macro mode, and submit
them for exhibition as part of The
Stillness of Dust series.
||// you can choose to observe your dust at close quarters//
eew. why would you want this?
||Shouldn't this be under "art"? (+)
||It's useful and artistic. We'd probably be amazed what turns up in there. This would pay for itself in lego recovery alone!
||Cool. Acksherly, this would be cool not just as an art project, but as an aftermarket add-on for yr hoover, allowing you to stare agog at the duty hanging static in the air while you are cleaning up, and to have your neigbours twitching their net curtains, fearing raves.
||The only problem I see is that you need a strobe somewhere above 12 fps to make the image appear somewhat constant. So, you'll need the dust revolving in the cylinder at the same rate (~720 rpm). Luckily, some famous models of cyclonic vacuum cleaners reveal cyclonic rpms of up to 325,000 rpm, so plus.
