  1. Thank you!
    I feel particularly honored (and not particularly deserving) because of the quality of the other entries. 
    Thanks also for the link to my website: There’s lots of new work here, as well:
    Again, thank you, boingboing!

    FWIW, I was grinning all the way through the  video clip because I know EXACTLY how those effects were produced. In fact, I have an enlargement on my wall from one of my own experiments — though I have to admit that it never occurred to me to film the process in progress, as was done here.

    (Transparency film, transilluminated, and gradually heated. If the heat gets too high, the film base bubbles and may break — which are useful effects in their own right — but if kept low you get these color flows and the wrinkling due to differential contraction of the heated film.)

    (Alas, I was just a bit too young to have been involved in the heyday of “light shows”. I’ve always liked the form.)
