Chemical Reactions: Are Science and Art More Related Than We Realize? [VIDEO]

Video of chemical reactions, when magnified and presented in high-def, create beautiful and captivating images. The project, “Beautiful Chemistry,” is a collaboration between the University of Science and Technology of China and Tsinghua University Press, which brings the beauty of chemistry to the public through digital media and technology.

The Institute of Advanced Technology at the Chinese university filmed chemical reactions up close, using a 4K UltraHD camera and special lenses to capture the reactions in astounding ways. The team also used advanced computer graphics and interactive technology to portray the intricate chemical structures, without distracting beakers and test tubes. The video features eight different kinds of chemical reactions in stunning detail.

So, is this art or science, or is it both?
