The Electrical Art series by Philip Stearns explores the state of ink before it disperses into liquid. Resembling sea creatures or paint-splattered masterpieces, the artist's compositions are created by exposing film to electrical currents.

Philip Stearns "produced his latest sequence of images by exposing instant film to high-voltage electricity, with results that evoke both macrocosms and microcosms – from galaxies to nerve clusters in the body." After the success of his experiment, the artist has launched a Kickstarter campaign to further develop his technique.

A Texas Native, the artist first studied engineering and physics at the University of Colorado at Denver before switching his major to music. He holds a MFA in music and integrated media studies at the California Institute of the Arts where he learned to fuse his flair for creativity with his past mathematical studies.
