A cool, yet creepy video

This could be anything.. but it’s a science test on the capillary action of bubbles and magnetic fluid. It looks like some creepy science fiction movie.

Compressed 02 from Kim Pimmel on Vimeo.

I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.

Time-lapse sequences: Nikon D90, Nikkor 60mm macro lens and custom built intervalometer.

Motion-control: Arduino driven scanner platform and mirror rigs

Score: Ableton Live
