Microsoft is hosting the Imaginecup which is a contest featuring quite a few disciplines ranging from programming to photography. This year’s “theme” is sustainabilty and as Sebastian and I are very fond of polarbears we gave it a try. So the next few frames are from our first essay which shows how a modern clarification plant works. In fact, the one here in Vienna is one of the most advanced plants worldwide. There is also a second essay that will be submitted as we think from a storytelling point of view, this one here is a weaker although the facilty itself is quite impressive.
There is a gap storywise because Sebastian covered those shots (the old part of the facility). Whatever.
The main idea of this part of the facility is to pump tiny air bubbles into the water so that specific kind of micro organisms grow. I lack of the shot that shows the process but I’m sure Sebastian is going to post some.
On the left, the water after the first traditional filtering. On the right, after the additional second biological filtering. Little difference, eh? They say the water is cleared by 98% – which is a quite impressive figure I think.
So, once again a not so-b/w-tri-x-ish entry. Still, I hope you enjoyed a few of those frames.
