Much like watching smoke & vaporous, the aqueous forms produced by Ken Keever are mesmerizing. Having stumbled upon Keever’s work via a great interview conducted by a Juxtapoz correspondent – I encourage you to read the whole account by clicking here. Below you’ll find an excerpt from said interview that tells of Keever’s interesting background:
“Keever’s first professional job was at NASA where he was testing “nozzles” in a futuristic laboratory designed to muffle all sound. At the time he was also pursuing a PhD in Thermodynamics … As it turns out, the engineering background provided Keever with a great set of problem solving strategies that has proven invaluable in his art making.”
Without further adieu, here are some incredible stills from Kim’s portfolio, followed by a video of the process (a performance piece in its own right).
