Chemical Bouillon are a trio of artists who use the chemistry of surface reactions to create abstract videos full of exploding and imploding droplets and colors. As chemicals react, local concentrations at the interface vary, which changes the local surface tension. These gradients drive flow from areas of low surface tension to those of higher surface tension. This is called the Marangoni effect – the same behavior that drives tears in a glass of wine. Chemical Bouillon have a whole YouTube channel dedicated to these kinds of videos, with everything from inks to ferrofluids. Be sure to take a look at some of their other videos and, if you like them, subscribe. (Video credit: Chemical Bouillon)
