Slowmo Video of Ink Injected Into Water Is Beyond Beautiful

Slowmo Video of Ink Injected Into Water Is Beyond Beautiful

We’ve featured things from Macro Room before, but they’ve sincerely outdone themselves in their latest INK-redible video!

The team at Macro Room never disappoints with their ultra detailed, incredibly close-up shots but everything becomes even more astounding when combined with some well-timed slow motion video. Injecting various inks into water would be beautiful enough but it’s amazing how things appear when some props are introduced to mess with perspective.

Bombarding tiny planets with plumes of color and zipping a comet through the ink clouds results in a practical effect that rivals the beauty of many CGI scenes. In fact, to us, it might even be more beautiful because it’s something that’s ultimately so simple and real. The planets are then swapped out for a 3D-printed cityscape where the ink injected down is reminiscent of weather rolling in or an Independence Daylike explosion.

Oddly, when they swap in flowers toward the end, it feels like they’ve done something out of order because it seems nothing could rival the comet’s path of swirly destruction and yet, we’re even more delighted at how the ink behaves. The petals sifting through the ink and–unless we’re missing some digital trickery–taking on some of the ink’s pigment.

As far as we’re concerned, Macro Room are experts in their field and we cannot wait for more of their videos. They’ve already cut things in half and melted others down but what are some other objects/actions you’d love to see in macro? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
