(From: Laughing Squid)
There are certain things that surprise you with their beauty. Case in point, this video from San Francisco-based blog Laughing Squid, caught us entirely off guard. Set to Alfred Brendel's playing of Beethoven's lyrical Piano Concerto No.5 in E flat major, it shows the process from top to bottom of how ink is made. And it turns out that that process is not only more interactive than we would have expected, but its also vivid and even balletic. The yellow ink folding into itself at the beginning grabbed us and we watched all 8 minutes and 52 seconds completely enthralled. Enjoy.
