    This was a great idea, and I really enjoyed watching the dry ice bounce around. If I were to change a few things it would be to go buy a more clear glassware if you could and use a black background to highlight the white smoke. I’m sure if you were able to get the slow-motion camera it would’ve looked even cooler.

    The flow effect is quite beautiful, perhaps you could have showcased it better in a better container that doesn’t have distracting markings. The filming technique was pretty good, it sounds like you had some challenges with your filming technique, this would be cool had you gotten good slow-mo and a darker backdrop.

    1. The video is effectively artistic and the multitude of colors used is a nice touch.
    2. The flow phenomena is well demonstrated.
    3. The technique is well done and the addition of music is great.

    Very interesting video. I like the different colors you used to highlight the flow, but the beaker with measurements seems a little distracting. Great job though!

    Cool idea, but the glass used distracts from the sublimation and blocks out some of the bubbles. Repeating with a different glass would be useful

    Cool idea to film the dry ice in water in slow motion. Too bad the camera you wanted to use didn’t work out but sounds like you may get another chance later this semester. My favorite parts of the video are when the plumes of air with condensed water vapor pop out of the container (e.g. 1:18 min). That would be cool to catch in slow motion. For improvements I have to agree with the suggestion of using a container with no writing and a black background .

    I like the different colors used; it makes the video fun and works well with the music. The glass is distracting, but i like the outside location. The sublimation is fun to watch.

    I loved the different colors mixing with the dry ice, and the coolest part of the video is the smoke that is produced with the mixture. Like was said in class, I would have used an all white background or something that won’t take away from the effect of the reaction. Really cool video though!

    Actually the dry ice is a wonderful material for purposes of flow visualization. That the smog keeps crawling out the container is so cool! Good music and video quality all make this work even better. The scale on the container is a little bit distracting though. Crystal utensils that have no scale on them might be better.

    I like how there are a variety of different colors used to display the flow. A nice fix for a situation to get it done with a dslr.

    Great video, and good music choice to compliment the dry ice effects in dyed water. Also, great idea to dye the water different colors but the fog always stays white due to the dry ice. Very cool demonstration! I would recommend using a different glass and glass other than a measuring glass to limit the distractions in the video.

    When the pieces are dancing around while sublimating it has great coordination with the music. A solid color background and a completely clear vessel would add a more professional feel.

    Personally, I think you should have used a little more elegant glass wear, and maybe varying glassware. The writing on the glass kind of distracts from the flow. Maybe get a background that creates a higher contrast with the fog and flow.

    Art: Good visual techniques.

    Flow: Cool to see how different food coloring gives different results with dry ice.

    Photography: Good focus on the measuring cup and keeping it centered.

    The video is well set up for image quality, crisp focus, good contrast between the gaseous layers, the dry ice and the sublimation bubbles. I would have appreciated more zoom and focus upon the actual sublimation interaction. This could have been cool to shoot at night or with some sort of luminescent liquids. Good work over all

    I like the video aspect and the water bouncing into the dry ice and instantly seeing the sublimation of the dry ice. Interesting to see the dry ice “floating” as the water is poured. Maybe better materials would help present the concept even better. Groovy music

    The range of color used for each repetition was unique. The dry ice in boiling water reacted to create pleasing visual effects. The video was aesthetically pleasing.

    Art: Love the color changing experiment.
    Flow: the smoke makes a cool effect.
    Photography: Maybe a black paper would have been better with fog. Overall awesome work.

    1. interesting video! I love the parts that show the bobbles coming off the Ice
    2. all the different colors are interesting and the water particles are easy to distinguish
    3. I think the background is interesting but a bit distracting

    Like the use of many different colors and angles to show the flow. Physics of the flow is revealed. Different background make have helped show more detail.

    Nice video, good choice for music. Fun to watch food dye and ice. In the future you might want to put up some sort of backdrop as the background is a bit distracting. Also, possibly use a glass without markings as they distract from the flow.

    -Really like all the different colors used to pour into the measuring cup
    -Cool to see the dry ice vaporize and produce quite a bit of gas in the different liquids
    -Good angle of video, really wished you could have used that high speed camera!

    Art: The color contrast between the food dye and the dry ice that is evaporating in the water.
    Flow: The flow is understandable and easily recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus on the cups is well done, and I liked the various zooms.

    Chaos, I like it. Pretty interesting seeing the sublimation of dry ice. Bouncing in and out of the water. Always loved that effect. Pretty interesting how it is just dancing around in there.
