Fungus spores are sadly under-represented in the world of abstract videos.

OK, serious derail question:

Does lycopodium powder really flash that much better? And how is it better - brighter per gram, faster flash, what?

I ask because powder of almost anything will flash pretty nicely. Non-dairy creamer was a favorite in the college lunch room, but iron filings will do the trick as well.

Crazy. Just sent an email to a bunch of my Berlin artist friends asking them to seek her out. Come on Metafilter an hour later and here she is. This work is gorgeous.

OK, not so serious derail question:
Does she get her name from Siouxsie Sioux?
I skipped the websites and I didn't see anything.
