The Kid Should See This

Float by Susi Sie

Bubbles and droplets of oil in water slowly float around as if in space until… plink! They pop together. Or pop apart? Float is an award-winning 2011 film by Susi Sie with music and sound design by Thomas Schuessler. FYFD writes:

Coalescence is a major player in the action, though Sie uses some clever time manipulations to make her bubbles and droplets multiply as well. Watching coalescence in reverse feels like seeing mitosis happen before your eyes.
