Get Wet // Zack Herzer

For my first “Get Wet” assignment, I decided to not get wet at all. I wanted to demonstrate that you can visualize the flow of a non-fluid: a crystalline solid! Because the individual grains of the table salt are so small, on a macroscopic level the salt can act as a fluid. I thought of this medium when I was using paint stripper on a table; at what point does the solid paint turn into liquid, ready to be swished off of the table surface? Can a solid, like applied and dried paint, be thought of as a fluid? For me, the answer is no, but table salt is also a solid yet can be shown to behave as a fluid.

  • Like the idea that the record was taken from the bottom.

    Nice concept! As I mentioned in the critique I think it would be awesome to visualize the individual grains in a separate flow of fluid such as compressed air or something similar.

    Neat choice! I would have like to watch the salt flow from other forces besides your hand. I think an hourglass type thing or spilling effect would be cool to capture next time.

    Really nice lighting and experimental setup! I like how clearly you can see the individual grains of salt against the dark ceiling.
