Startling Photographs tell powerful science stories.




Always looking for people who bridge the arts and science. I think we need more of this, because the distance between the great artists and scientists was much closer a few centuries ago than I believe it is now. Really enjoyed watching Swiss artist Fabian Oefner is on a mission to make eye-catching images that illustrate principles of science. In this charming talk, he shows off some recent psychedelic images, including photographs of crystals as they interact with soundwaves. And, during a live demo, he shows what really happens when you mix paint with magnetic liquid -- or when you set fire to whiskey.
