Water – Oil – Alphabet

As a bioinformatician, the computer scientist in me has a certain affinity to (finite) alphabets. Having been exposed to experiments with micro-droplets (in the context of high-throughput interaction screening and directed evolution using in-vitro compartmentalization), finding this video that combines characters with a water/oil emulsion is just great! Not to mention hydrophobicity as a force in protein folding – anyway, I hope you find it also aesthetically as appealing as I do, even if the experimental or biophysical ideas that I project onto it might not be exactly your cup of tea. Enjoy!

Isn’t that what art is meant to be, building a stimulating projection surface for more abstract concepts beyond superficial beauty – even if these concepts are not really what the artist had in mind originally?
