«La goutte kamikaze» belongs to «Liquid Art», in which are captured moving liquids at very high speed. The main problem lay in the burst between these drops that have to be released with a perfect timing, same for the moment when the photographer has to press the release button. When a drop falls in a liquid surface, it expells a small liquid column. To realise the umbrella on top of the latter, the second drop has to bump into the first at the exact moment when it ends its stretching. It is then possible to conceive an infinite number of shapes depending on multiple parameters such as timing and fall distance... It is thus an experimental process that requires patience and dexterity but luck has its say in the resulting shape of the collision and that is the whole point. Vincent Xeridat had precisely in mind this photo before realizing it, but it is rare to get close of it in reality. Here, the artist told us being very proud because he has achieved his goal but also got an unexpected bonus... The theme he had chosen was the Japanese Kamikaze, thus, he placed on the background the red and white colors of the rising sun country's flag and has been tirelessly shooting, until he obtained the photo he had in mind. It is only after several hundreds of attempts that he saw on his small control screen a head on top of the column with a bandana, a pirate eye patch and a beard! In addition, we observe that the collision of both drops is perfect.
