Soap Seeds

Gravity animates a mixture of water, dishwashing liquid, and glycerin.

These ingredients are typically transparent; shown is the reflection of a brightly lit smooth white surface, producing a metallic texture that a camera cannot really capture. In real life, this delicate plane is more of a deep chrome that's extraordinarily vibrant.

The thickness of this soap film ranges from about 10–600 nanometers. The lightest pink color is the width of a human hair divided by 100. The black color is but one cell wall deep.
