‘There are a large number of different physical structures which form spontaneously as their components try to meet certain energetic requirements. These components may be constrained, for example, to seek a point of minimal free energy, like a soap bubble, which acquires its spherical form by minimizing surface tension…'

- Manuel DeLanda (Intensive Science and Virtual Philosophy

I am interested in capturing the unfolding of form in physical structures. I have chosen the bubble because of its spherical form and because its playfulness is contrasted with the cold sterile aesthetic of the Scientific experiment. I have used both sequence and the grid to heighten a sense of narrative in the changing line, shape and form of the bubble untill it reaches its final shape, a sphere.
