Ink Explosion

Featured Video Play Icon

Sometimes beautiful flows come from simple combinations. Here the artists of Chemical Bouillon combine ink and hydrocarbons to create lovely explosions of color. Eschewing quick cuts between views, they allow us to linger and explore the flow ourselves as it changes. Differences in surface tension drive streaming flows along the surface, but there seem to be some chemical reactions contributing as well. Watch along the edges and you may even see convection pulling ink down and back. The whole video is only 2 minutes long and worth a full watch. (Image and video credit: Chemical Bouillon)
