Film: Just try and watch Pacific Light without being completely hypnotised

Posted by Liv Siddall,

They say good cameras don’t necessarily always get you good results, but in this case I think we can definitely say they do. Using only a very good macro lens and some vibrant ink, artist Ruslan Khasanov has created this terrifyingly hypnotic short film. With the magic combination of what looks like hundreds-and-thousands among jelly-ish blobs of rainbow liquid, he beckons your eyeballs in to his world, which is cleverly soundtracked by someone called Boris Blank. Boris’ rather tense, ominous music combined with Ruslan’s candy colours makes for a very strange couple of minutes indeed. Enjoy!
