Filmmaker Thomas Blanchard created the most hypnotic video using items found around the house, that would definitely inspire any kid to go Jackson Pollack on the kitchen walls. In the short video called "Memories of Paintings," the artist combines milk, oil, paint, and liquid soap, filming it swirling and cascading in front of a macro lens. Prepare to be mesmerized.
The result is something between a Lisa Frank-looking ocean and a vibrantly colored galaxy. If you need more milky-oily-soapy-paint swirly goodness, you can also check out another one of Blachard's videos, "The Colors of Feelings".
