Filmmaker Thomas Blanchard knows how to transform household liquids into swirling, rainbow oceans and galaxies. In the abstract video above, Blanchard gives viewers a close-up look as he combines soap, milk, and oil with a range of paints. Titled “Memories of Painting,” the clip explores the colorful world of the microscopic and serves as proof that there can be hidden beauty within even the most seemingly mundane objects.

"[It's] an experimental dreamlike video rocking us smoothly through circular moves,” Blanchard writes in the video's description. Check it out above.
