The Marangoni effect is a specific fluid phenomenon that occurs when a fluid’s surface tension is changing. In this video, I used pen ink in an alcohol and water mixture on a bed of sunflower oil to visualize the effect. As the alcohol evaporates the surface tension changes leaving really remarkable fluid flows and structures.

    This is an amazing video, I think it’s the craziest thing shown in class so far. I actually like that you included the fractal phenomenon at the end. I like it because it seems like it’s the third act of a whole story. It feels like the bubbles, in the beginning, are little creatures and then they go through some sort of change into sharp angles and finally forming their own “network” of fractals.

    The thought you put into this is so cool! The music really adds to the video and I really like that you chose to make a video rather than a still image. Very neat.
