When watching this beautiful display of art, it is easily over looked that this technique uses a background in fluid dynamics. The artist, Roman De Giuli, uses Rayleigh-Taylor insatiability and a flow release medium to create his vibrant short film “Magic Fluids” and many others of its kind. The film is created by layering paints of different densities on top of each other. This technique is called the “Accidental Painting Technique” where over time the denser paints will be covered by the less dense paints. Roman De Giuli uses compositions of fluids, powders, and colors are applied to a variety of mediums including large paper canvases and petri dishes. I highly recommend taking a moment to watch the actual short film because the stills do not to the video justice.
