Photographer Marcel Christ is able to create gorgeous works of art by exploding paint and water. The explosions of color closely resemble the blooms or ash emitted during a volcanic eruption.

With the human eye only being able to register so much, Marcel is able to capture what we don't see with high-speed cameras. With each image being captured "at 1/10,000th of a second," we would need to have superhuman eye sight.

With these images showing the works of art that are found in destruction, it makes you wonder what other works of art we are missing out on. The process used by Marcel Christ is a secret he keeps in order to keep the mystery of his photographs alive. I for one want to get a super high-speed camera and start smashing things on the ground.
