This video is an exploration of some ideas I had to do with evolution. These thoughts occurred to me whilst I was exploring different kinds of flow in the University lab and at home .. the similarities between the growth of shapes within the ink and those of plant and animal forms would form an intriguing area for exploration.
The video starts with a spinning planet seen from afar, then we plunge down into its surface to explore in detail. Life forms, initially simple in their shape, become increasingly complex as we move through time. The video ends with the spinning planet below a turbulent sky.
It was a great experience collecting the footage over several weeks, seeing different kinds of flow up close for the first time; fantastic! – I very much hope you enjoy watching it.
