Craig Ward’s Cascades

If no two snowflakes are ever alike, the same goes for Craig Ward’s electromagnetic ice trees…

His new video for Ryan Teague’s atmospheric song, Cascades, makes for a beautiful intersection between science and art. Cascades follows the growth of intricate ice trees from the tips of electrically charged needles, along electromagnetic field lines, and finally to their eventual surrender under the force of gravity. The video, Ward’s first, was shot over four days in a basement, with the help of biochemist Linden Gledhill and photographer Jason Tozer. See the CR iPad app for a how it was done film.
