William LeGoullon’s work expresses his fascination with beverages, the variety of methodological processes with which they are crafted and the detailed makeup of each liquid. Stemming from his work both as an artist and as a barista and bartender, his interest is in concocting a recipe of beverage culture, art and science with regard to what humans consume. He is continually inspired by observing what has been left behind and the clues that inspire examination.
In his series, Fingerprints of Drinkable Culture, he treats the world’s most consumed man-made beverages as scientific specimens, allowing each liquid sample to dry before photographing them using a microscope. The resulting image provides a chance to analyse these fingerprints of drinkable culture as an act of art consumption.
