Scary creatures are hiding inside our washing machines

Next time you do laundry, don’t just walk away after you put the load in. You’ll miss the monsters. Because if you stare through the looking glass, you’ll discover terrifying creatures that look like they come from Guillermo del Toro’s imagination trapped inside.

Slate pointed to the work of photographer Yvette Meltzer and her photo series Revolutions. She captures pictures of what’s inside a washing machine and dryer and it’s pretty fun to see how dirty clothes and linens tumble into familiar shapes and forms that almost look like abstract art. Meltzer writes:

After taking multitudes of outdoor laundry images over the years, it was in Chicago in the cold of winter when my curiosity led me into local Laundromats where, drawn to the colors of laundry spinning in the dryers, I began taking photos. I never imagined the mandalas I would ultimately see when I went to the computer to view the digital images of this spinning laundry. Therein I saw faces and forms – both human and animal-like. Thus was born my revolving laundry series which I call “Revolutions.”

What has been most exciting for me has been capturing the abstract forms that have emerged on this journey. As Picasso said, “There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.” I believe that is what this series does. I start with fabric in a dryer and in collaboration with my camera the concrete reality is transformed.
