Student Galleries

 

Fractured Food

Trevor Bair and Amoz Eckerson

 

The photographs in this gallery were taken by two students who hail from Harold Edgerton's home town of Aurora, Nebraska.  They took most of the photos in the basement of the Edgerton Explorit Center in Aurora.  In addition to learning how to take high-speed photographs, they were among the Center's first volunteers during its first year of operation in '95-96. They helped to set up, maintain, and build some of the exhibits as well as present demonstration programs on how to take high-speed photographs.

The four photos in this gallery show various foods being pulverized with pellets. Of course, any experimentation involving high-speed projectiles should only be done under controlled conditions with responsible adult supervision.  Amoz and Trevor wore goggles, stopped the BBs in a trap, and worked systematically to ensure that no one would ever be in the path of a BB.

 

Trevor is now a student at the University of Kansas, while Amoz attends the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
