Looking at the work of Thomas Blanchard, you might think you're witnessing some cataclysmic event on an alien planet. And it makes sense, with all the swirling, looping colors and hypnotic patterns that permeate his most recent project.
But can you tell what's really going on here?
In reality, these images are stills from Blanchard's video called The Colors of Feelings. To achieve these swirling wonders, the artist used paint, milk, honey, and cinnamon.
For his part, Blanchard says that the video is representative of human emotion — an "analogy of feelings such as anger, love, sadness, and joy."
