Ruslan Khasanov: Pacific Light
Russian artist Ruslan Khasanov has created a short film called Pacific Light, which captures multicoloured inks dissipating from bead-like globules into swirling pools of colour.
The technicolour footage was filmed at a microscopic level and digitally enhanced in post-production. Vibrant inks are combined and interact with oil and soap to create otherworldly underwater scenes. Music by Swiss musician Boris Blank accompanies the hypnotic video.
Employing a similar aesthetic, Switzerland-based photographer Fabian Oefner combines magnetic fluids and watercolour paints in his Millefiori macro photography series.
