Vins Blake is a talented photographer and filmmaker currently based in London, U.K. Vins driven by the fascinating interplay between science and art. He recieved his MA in Biotechnology from University of Milan-Bicocca and procured whilst teaching as an Assistant Professor at N.A.B.A., a prestigious Academy of Fine Arts also in Milan, Italy.
For his new project “Planets”, Blake uses chemistry and electronic engineering to create a series of images resembling alien worlds using a simple egg.
Intrigued by transformation, he developed the current body of work by making use of chemistry and electronic engineering.
The Planets series is a re-elaboration of reality based on a multifaceted premise that blends art and science by manipulating one’s perception of an otherwise ordinary subject: a simple egg. With his vision Blake challenges both the notion and shape of the subject itself, then its aesthetic impact after the metamorphosis.
The result is dramatic and organic, yet, due to the process, permeated with spontaneity and uniqueness.
