These stills come from “Cornstarch,” a three-minute video showing the dynamics of a cornstarch and water mixture when shaken at 30 Hz. Filmed by Matthias Mobius and Eric Corwin, physics doctoral students, and Terry Bigioni, a James Franck Institute research assistant, “Cornstarch” won first prize in the “Sights and Sounds of Science” contest, sponsored by the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center. The contest aimed to provoke dialogue between the arts and the sciences using short films and audio recordings. Tied for first place in the “Sights” category was “Environmental Plastic Film: A New Form of Urban Flora,” by English doctoral student Oliver Gaycken. In the “Sounds” category Elliot Brennan, AB’03, won for his sequenced and synthesized recordings of voice, water drops, and crumpling paper.—J.N.L.
