Waterwork of Art by Jack Long
Burst: The liquid surface of this creation glistens in the sunLiquid: This blue shape appears to have risen from the water of its own volition
Machinery: For this set, called River and taken near his home, Mr Long created a special machine to squirt the liquid, which could work while submerged in the water.They look like exquisite vases made of finely-blown glass, placed carefully on a pedestal to receive the admiration of gallery visitors.

But in fact these colourful images are not precious artefacts preserved for the ages, but show a split-second in which specially-manipulated liquids are captured in fantastic formation.They are the work of American photographer Jack Long, 55, from Milwaukee, who developed a special formula for the liquids himself.
