“-N- Uprising”

Featured Video Play Icon

Although Thomas Blanchard’s latest short film, “-N- Uprising”, is less overtly fluid dynamical, fluids underlie almost every aspect of it. The blossoming of flowers is often driven by osmosis and water pressure. Spiders rely on hydraulic pressure to move their limbs, and many insects first unfurl their wings by pumping hemolymph through the network of veins that lace them. Even when hidden beneath the surface, fluid dynamics is everywhere. (Video credit: T. Blanchard; via Colossal)
