A number of video artists—Roman De Giuli and Thomas Blanchard come to mind—have demonstrated the visual glory of moving, vibrantly colored liquids mingling beneath a macro lens. Russian motion graphics artist and photographer Ruslan Khasanov now enters the fray with his video, NEON 4K, in which he has neon liquids floating, combining, and dissolving in a variety of stunning and psychedelic ways.

To create the video, Khasanov shot 4K on a Sony a7R II with a Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G lens. Granted, some of the footage resembles Blanchard’s work, especially the clips of liquid dots, but Khasanov definitely has something fresh to offer when the neon liquids fuse to create a cosmic complexity that looks like the cinematic special effects once found in old science fiction films. See for yourself below:
