Experiment Four – water balloons & food colouring

Ingredients for Experiment Four

Having drawn marks with the remote control car, which at times felt wild and unmanageable, I thought I would maintain that sense of unpredictability in this experiment, whilst attempting to have some control by using hands to throw the water balloons. So the rules were simply this – using hands to throw objects at paper to make marks, as opposed to using objects to create marks. Still a lot of surprise involved and unpredictability of outcome, but no electrical devices involved apart from camera to capture the event and final images.

Method – (starting point): Filling water balloons with food colouring and water and allowing the contents to randomly fall on to the paper positioned on the drive way.
