This video shows oobleck, which is made from corn starch and water, being dropped onto a glass dish. Captured with a Sony High-Speed Camera.
Made in collaboration with Will Dietz, Maridith Stading, and Ryan Wells.

I love the still image you captured, it looks like a snail. It’s also really cool that you took a slow mo video, I wish I had been able to do the same with my oobleck experiment. I also really like the contrast between the smoothness of the oobleck and the ridges of the backdrop
I liked how you dropped the fluid on its self. It shows really well how it collided itself like it was a solid but then merged together like it was a liquid.
I think that what makes your video unique and cool for me is the perspective from which you dropped the ooblek. Having it fall down from the camera gives a unique view that is both visually cool and could provide insight into how these fluids work.
I like the music choice, very fun! I also like how you can see the oobleck transition from acting more like a solid to a liquid.
I think all of the takes highlighted all of the very weird properties of oobleck. Of it acting as a fluid by dispersing and dripping, and as a sold by tearing and hitting and bouncing off the surface.
I like the timing of the video, you layered the textures well on top of one another and gave a good amount of time for the previous chunk to soften before dropping the next one. The last drop has a gross color and shape and kinda made me go “eww” which was great.
