Photographs of Iridescent Oil Spills

As part of an ongoing effort to explore the visual effects of iridescence, artist Fabian Oefner created a photographic series titled Oil Spill. To create the images he used a syringe to drip small drops of oil into a black reservoir containing water. As the oil expanded into plumes he captured the images you see here reminiscent of giant fires, irises, or exploding stars.
