Kim Pimmel

Here are two beautiful videos by Kim Pimmel. One of them displays ink toner particles, the other one a ferrofluid and soap bubbles. This kind of art, already featured in a few previous posts, is closely related in spirit with algorithmic and generative art. Instead of using a computer and custom algorithms, one uses Nature's law in a clever way in order to create astonishing patterns and structures. Under one of his photos on flickr, Kim Pimmel calls his technique "analog generative"... I can't think of a better epithet.
