Art and Physics Collide: Accidental Painting

"Accidental painting" is pretty simple: Drop some paint onto a horizontal surface, wait, then pour a different color of paint on top of it. When done in the correct order, however, the results can be fantastic.

An art historian and physicist decided to find out why after investigating the works of the artist who perfected this technique: David Alfaro Siqueiros

Check out the video embedded below for more on this research. The results are absolutely stunning.

Also, check out our Physics Central article that goes into the detail of the research.
