“Art of Paint”

Featured Video Play Icon

Filmmaker Roman De Giuli is always coming up with spectacular and visually fascinating new ways to manipulate ink and other liquids. In “Art of Paint,” he applies thin layers atop a custom plate that can be tilted in any direction. The results sometimes resemble acrylic paint pours, sometimes Marangoni flows, and sometimes look more like salt fingers or Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities. The extreme variety of forms is quite unique among these sorts of films and is well worth taking the time to view in fullscreen. (Image and video credit: R. De Giuli)

    Beautiful and informative.
    The only thing which hurts each time I watch such paint flows is knowing that these resources are being used up. Each ounce of paint left a scar somewhere. The blood of the earth extracted so that we can watch the beauty of our mother’s blood.
