Semiconductor, "Magnetic Movie", 2007

Like Virginia, I thought I'd post a more hi-tech piece.
You know, for balance.
This video, "Magnetic Movie" was created by Semiconductor, a group that incorporates recent scientific research into their pieces. As described by the Semiconductor website: "In Magnetic Movie, Semiconductor have taken the magnificent scientific visualisations of the sun and solar winds conducted at the Space Sciences Laboratory and Semiconducted them. Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt of Semiconductor were artists-in-residence at SSL. Combining their in-house lab culture experience with formidable artistic instincts in sound, animation and programming, they have created a magnetic magnum opus in nuce, a tour de force of a massive invisible force brought down to human scale, and a "very most beautiful thing."
