Patterns large and small

Below is a small collection, mostly movie stills, of recent lab work on whirlpool vortices – I’m intrigued by the similarities with galactic formations, and by the transformation of patterning as it disappears down the hole forever. I’ve been on the look out for hexagons as always – managed to find quite a few!


‘Embryonic vortex’


‘Gathering material’


‘Moving towards a hexagon’


‘Swallowing the pattern’


‘Anamorphic transform’
