Swiss artist Fabian Oefner is on a mission to make eye-catching images that illustrate principles of science. In this charming talk, he shows off some recent psychedelic images, including photographs of crystals as they interact with soundwaves. And, in a live demo, he shows what really happens when you mix paint with magnetic liquid — or when you set fire to whiskey.
