In a new light-painting series by photographer Nicolas Rivals, Rorschach’s famed ink-blot tests have been inadvertently recreated with marvelous effect. The “Light Rorchach” (typo intentional) images were captured symmetrically through the spinning of burned steel wool beside a reflective water surface. Each long exposure shot makes you wonder which half is the original, and which is the reflection. Both sides are equally magnificent, as are the psychologically compelling photos.
