High Speed Photography – The Frozen Motion

High speed photography belongs to the highlights and culmination of the art and science of photography.

Speaking technically, high speed photography refers to either taking a photograph at a high sensitive level to create the frozen motion effect and reduce to zero the motion blur or to capturing a series of frames at a high frame rate to demonstrate how things change during high speed motion.

Rebecca Wilson Ceramics



Drawing her inspiration from the kitsch ceramic aesthetics, Rebecca takes the medium of ceramics as both her chosen material and subject matter. She is an enthusiastic hoarder, and aims to breathe new life into abandoned and forgotten domestic objects. She is fascinated by people’s ever more transient relationships with their possessions in the growth of this throwaway culture we live in. By making playful and ironic changes to the inherent properties of an object, and combining decadent porcelain with incidental materials such as jelly, chocolate and paper, she aims to elevate the status of nick-knacks and trinkets, making them into art objects and viceversa.
