A Broken Monitor’s Fingers

Featured Video Play Icon

In this short video, the artists of Chemical Bouillon explore a broken LCD monitor and its liquid crystals. By sandwiching the fluid between thin, transparent sheets, they create dendritic shapes as the liquid crystals and other fluids (air? ink?) push into one another. There’s a lot here that’s likely connected to the Saffman-Taylor instability, but without knowing more details on the ingredients and set-up, it’s hard to speculate beyond that.
