Frozen Soap Bubbles: Ice crystal ‘snow globes’ by ZALUSKArt

Watch more with these video collections:

Watch ice crystals form on soap bubbles in -15C, filmed by Warsaw-based photographer and videographer Pablo Zaluska. He was inspired to film these delicate formations after having a conversation with his three year old daughter. He writes:

– Daddy, I don’t want to put this jacket on. – she moaned
– Me too, darling but it is very cold outside. – I explained
– How cold?
and I had to figure out an interesting answer which would satisfy a preschooler’s curiosity, so I told her:
– It is so cold that even soap bubbles freeze and it looks really beautiful, you know?
I saw a sparkle in her eye so I promised to make a film to show her that. She was so excited about this idea that of course she forgot that she didn’t want to put her jacket on. It wasn’t easy to capture those bubbles because only around 5-10% of them didn’t break instantly and as you can imagine it was a challenge to be patient at -15 Celsius, but it was worth it because now that my daughter has seen it, winter is magic for her.
