"On the space that widens between you and your imagination as you grow old."
Made with mostly simple household goods like food coloring, soap, water (and a few exotic things like Ferrofluid). I wanted to draw the viewer in with lush visuals and loose narrative, but then burst that suspension of disbelief with the recognizable bubble characters - compelling the viewer to ask themselves whether they still have their childlike wonder or not.
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

Ferrous printer toner particles floating on the surface of water are attracted by a magnet and align to the invisible magnetic field around them. The patterns and motions that result are strangely ordered and organized.
Time-lapse sequences were created from individual photos shot with a Nikon D90, DIY macro lens and custom intervalometer. Edited with Adobe Premiere.
