This dizzying video and accompanying images use oil, soap and paint in order to create movements that feel otherworldly, psychedelically bursting from their surroundings.
Shot in extremely high resolution and at close range, the vibrant colours glide across the screen in director Thomas Blanchard’s “Galaxy Gates” creation.
What’s even more stunning is the fact that the final work only used around two percent of the footage Thomas and his photographer partner, Oilhack, were able to capture over the space of four months.
When working on the project, the duo mixed the chemicals in different variations; when a vibrant reaction was then triggered, they would start the camera rolling.
There was a lot of trial and error in such a process, Thomas, 31, said, as there are infinite possibilities for how much oil, paint and soap to mix. Take a look!
As captivating as the pictures are, nothing is quite as incredible as watching it on video. What an incredibly unique form of art, and definitely something I’d like to try myself at some point!
