creative liquids performance

Volkard Stuerzbecher does things like reaction-diffusion and BZ reactions in dishes of chemicals and does live shows. Some tantalizing images are on the site and one video. In german. Here's a bit of his intro:

In 19. Century chemistry professor Friedlieb Ferdinand (1794-1867) discovered pictures which painted themselves. Its painting consisted of the fact that it dripped chemical solutions on absorbent paper. Thus automatically form and color processes with fascinating boundary surface dynamics developed. From this discovery the procedure of the chromatography developed later. ... With my investigations for the Morphogenese and structure formation I develop new procedures of the picture production. This kind to work presupposes a new self understanding of the artist. It is not any more the exclusive creator of its work of art, but self-dynamics and creativity of the subject play a crucial role during the organization process.
