Compressed is Kim Pimmel‘s “series of choreographed time-lapse shorts that explore the beauty of the forces of nature that surround us.” The above movie is #1.

Ferrous printer toner particles floating on the surface of water are attracted by a magnet and align to the invisible magnetic field around them. The patterns and motions that result are strangely ordered and organized.

Time-lapse sequences were created from individual photos shot with a Nikon D90, DIY macro lens and custom intervalometer. Edited with Adobe Premiere.
