“Being” – a new collaborative video

Tullio DeSantis and I have just completed a new video entitled “Being”, combining Tullio’s music with my fluid dynamics imagery.

Tullio’s music has a relaxed, meditative quality, which made me think of new ways of expressing links between the cosmos and life forms here on earth. I could see connections between new planets and cellular life forms coming into existence, and wanted to express the slow, inexorable quality of this birth process – a gradual unfolding of events. The whirling galaxies that recur throughout the video are analogous to a kind of ‘wheel of life’, and we see similarities of pattern and form at all scales.

I hope you enjoy this video. It was great fun to make – I enjoyed many hours of experimenting in the Fluids lab at Exeter Uni to obtain the footage for it.
