Artist Injects Paint Into Bubble Wrap To Create A Gorgeous Portrait
Anyone who says that bubble wrap is just for packaging and/or for the strangely soothing pastime of popping each bubble individually when you're bored is just plain wrong. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely great for both of those things but it has other uses too. Did you know that you can spray your windows with a little water and stick bubble wrap to them for low-cost insulation during the winter months? Recently, people have also found that bubble wrap can be used a low-cost petri dish to store fluid samples in by injecting the fluid into the bubbles.
That same idea of injecting bubble paper can also be applied artistically, as artist Michael Fischler shows us in this video. By carefully injecting various hues of paint into each bubble, he eventually creates a stunning portrait of singer Beth Thornley, whose song "Birmingham" can be heard playing throughout the video. Now THAT'S a unique concept for a music video!
