Basic Balloon Bursts

Richard Turlington

 

Richard punctured these air balloons with the point of a dart.  He used dark balloons, since that seemed to emphasize the contrast between the inside and outside of the balloon.  He positioned a sound trigger at different distances from the balloon to capture the rips in various stages. The trigger is visible at the bottom of the balloon in some of the photos.
