‘Compressed 02’ by creative designer Kim Pimmel

Magnetized liquid streaming through soap bubble capillaries; quiet awesome. ‘Insert opening credits here’ was my first reaction to this great image/liquid capturing display.

No digitally generated imagery was used and I feel this is the way how filmmaking and all other medium-imagination-extracting processes used to be tackled — if you can imagine it, you can make it. Mesmerizing.

Closest resemblance I can think of to Pimmel’s Compressed 2 would have to be director Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain, only in this instance, Compressed 2 is the title role:

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. [cargocollective.com/kimpimmel]
