The heart of the old school psychedelic liquid light show, popularized in the 60's and 70's: the oil and water technique. Colored oil and dyes were put together and squeezed between at least two plates of glass, usually off the front of clocks. Many other analog techniques were also used during the movement, however, this remains the most memorable.
Sadly, many old school liquid light teams, and their marvelous optical inventions, gave way to big time concert lighting, automated movers, and digitally produced graphics. A small handful or artists still exist, who carry on and keep the art form alive. Some artists, such as Liquid Light Lab, even try to improve on them using modern optics and live video capture technology.
