A new movie and new experiments with flow

Tullio De Santis and I have completed a new movie entitled “Cosmology”, the first of a series of three movies.

“Biology” was posted here last week, and we are currently working on the middle one of the three which will be entitled “Astronomy”.

Here is “Cosmology”, in which the words and audio are by Tullio, combined with my still and moving imagery. We see a journey through time and space tracing the development of the cosmos, and echoing its ever-increasing complexity.

In the Fluids lab at Exeter University I have been investigating the effects of combining outward and rotational flow. This combination can lead to complex and unusual patterning – here are some examples all taken from movie footage:


‘New blue wave’


‘pink and cream meander’


‘Big splash’
