Experiments 2

The majority of bubble film experiments in the period 1993-1995 were performed on electromechanical apparatus where one side of the geometric frame was fixed. A variable speed AC motor drove a rod attached to the hinged support structure of the bubble frame. While oscillations were not distributed equally to all sides of the polygonal frames, the elasticity of the bubble film compensated for the restriction during cycles. Other apparatus (see photo-Experiments) included acoustically driven modes of vibration with supporting stand.


The following frames show the wide variety of phenomenon recorded from these experiments of both curved and flat bubble films. Video includes rotating spiral density waves.

Evolving large ring and nucleus

inflow of fluids in rotating 3-arm spiral changing to 2-arm system


evolution of 3-arm system to 2-arm (note-angularity of arms)


rotating 'propellers'

more propellers and rotating rayed nucleus structure
