The artist, Corrie White, creates images by dropping dyed cream into water then flips the images 180 degrees. This produces what looks like a milky smoke plume. The artist makes the viewer believe there is upward motion by creating a visual that is recognizable. However, the viewer has to double check since the density of the fluid is different than smoke. My favorite part about this piece is the time it commands the viewer to analyze it.
